( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

It parses numerical entities. Decoding them wasn't required and would only require one regex be added. It handles namespace prefixes exactly as I wanted it to (they're included in the tag name). It is trivial to make it handle them differently (which is the point). I won't go into "validation" here, it being a subject worthy of a lengthy write-up.

A pre/post processor could fix this...

Wow. You are really stuck in thinking in terms of an XML-parsing module. There is no need to do anything in a pre-/post-processor -- which is part of the whole point of the exercise.

For example, supporting comments is 2 minutes' work and easily fits into the existing structure. The few items that rise to the level of being interesting to implement are the things that I've never actually seen used in any XML. So it shouldn't be surprising that I didn't bother to implement them in the code that implemented just what I needed for one project.
