For input, maybe a parser that supports simple event-driven processing and also can generate the SimpleXML model, whatever that is. -Dado PS: probably everyone on this list is already aware of this, but SAX stands for Simple API for XML. To support MicroXML, we would want an even simpler one; Micro-API: MAX? uAX?. Probably can be a strict subset of SAX using the same names for the same things, and just eliminating those that are no longer part of MicroXML. If there is some even simpler way of processing tree-structured data that doesn't require events or data structures, I'm all for it, but I'm not sure I know what that is. I will admit to having written an XML-based templating system in Perl using only regular expressions, but I don't want to do that again.
