When we say that there can only be one root for an XML 1.0 document, we forget to say that it just means one element at root level but there can be many nodes with a different type. XML 2.0 should allow multiple elements at root level. Metadata should, instead, be serialized with elements in a dedicated namespace! Maybe within the xml namespace itself for the most frequent ones... Alain Couthures <agenceXML> Bordeaux, France
