Sounds like a really great system, Chris. I think it is readable, easy to
understand and newbie friendly. I love the idea. I'm also assuming that
creating new <tags> won't be that hard for the average programmer, but then
I could be wrong. You've got my vote for this XML - could you please tell
the group where abouts we can find these open source XML parsers?
