Alright then, go and read the XML spec and tell me where it defines XML "parsing". All 
it mentions is "processing", which my routine certainly does.

MW's definition of parse is "to resolve (as a sentence) into component parts of speech 
and describe them grammatically," which my routine does, providing you define the 
sentence as "just the elements I told you about."

I'll now attempt to distract you from my argument by pointing out the quote which my 
sig generator came up with for this message:

 have no respect for spelling, grammar or any obstacles"
