Sorry my confusion lies in that parsing refers to taking data of one unmanageable
form and converting it into a manageable form. In other words, you cannot do
anything useful with an XML document until you parse it, all it is a set of bytes
that follow a particular pattern. Parsing a DOM tree is an oxymoron IMHO unless
you are converting the DOM tree into some other tree. I guess I would have to
take a closer look at what you have. From second glance it seems as if what you
have are utility methods for searching and sorting a DOM tree. In this case you
would have a DOM Manager...
