in reply to XML::Parser can't create empty tags?

Am I just being too picky? Is it too much to ask that empty tags be kept empty?

Yes, you're too picky ;-). Seriously, the two XML fragments are completely identical from an XML point of view: the first form is just a shorthand notation.

Furthermore, the canonical form for end-tags is the one produced by XML::Parser. Also, keep in mind that in SAX you always receive an 'end tag' event, independent of the way the empty element was actually written.

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)
