in thread is XML too hard?

I don't know lisp but this analogy seems to me not quite correct. For instance how about this XML:

<REALLYLONGNAME with_a_property='aaa'> some free form text <ANOTHERLON +GNAME>foo</ANOTHERLONGNAME> text text</REALLYLONG +NAME>
How would you translate this to lisp?

      OK - I was fooled by the unquoted 'foo' in the first example.

    (REALLYLONGNAME ((with_a_property "aaa")) ("some free form text" (ANOTHERLONGNAME () ("foo")) "t +ext text"))


      OK. This allready has been answered in fact and I withdraw all my pretensions. For my explanation - I was lured by the lack of quoting in your first example.
