comparing a part of the XML tree
I am starting this new thread, because the discussion does not fit the subject of the previous thread anymore.
My situation is as follows: My user selects a subset of the original XML file. After this action I need to compare the selection of the user to the original. Once I find the location of the selection inside the original I have to surround this selection with a new tag, say "<selected>", and "</selected>". I have placed an example of text online at http://www.jborsje.nl/example.txt, so you can see what I mean.
One way I can think of is iterating over all of the elements of the original, each time calling the "deep-equal()" function, but I do not know if that is the best approach.
