Sure, and I've seen enormous problems come out of people "compiling" XML schemas into classes using the tools that are now available. I mean, one of the main reasons for using XML is to decouple applications, and then people compile the XML schemas into code so that they tightly couple their applications to this week's version of the XML. It can cause *huge* delays for projects. People don't seem to remember that if you tightly couple some of your code to the XML, you need to loosely couple those bits of code to the rest of your application. Cheers, Tony. ==== Anthony B.
