Ack! Don't do that. The line-based diff used by CVS, Subversion, etc., is NOT smart enough to accurately diff XML; to do diffs, branches, and merges safely, you'd need a diff program that understands XML structures. MIF, which is what everyone thinks of after learning that XML won't work, is even worse: Tiny changes in a document become ENORMOUS changes in the MIF file. -Andrew === Andrew Warren - awarren at synaptics.com === Synaptics, Inc - Santa Clara, CA
