RE: Appending to an XML document
The advantage of having the document be well-formed XML is that you can then run it through just about any third party parser. I agree with Larry; this is the root of the problem (or at least my problem since I want to use a third party parser).

While this may be the root of other problems, and I do not claim to vouch for all such problems, it is _not_ the root of the particular problem in question. I see no reason why the log file must be a well-formed XML document. Can you tell me what is wrong with just treating it as an external parsed entity? -- Uche Ogbuji FourThought LLC, IT Consultants uche.ogbuji@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (970)481-0805 Software engineering, project management, Intranets and Extranets http://FourThought.com http://OpenTechnology.org XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
