It should also be noted that data.txt in this example will have to have all
its < > and & characters properly escaped, as the file is a "parsed" entity.
And even then, you're stuck with XSLT/XPath's functions for accessing the
data, which means substring nightmares.

Like Mark Hu said, better to write something else that will XML-ize your
data. Then you can manipulate it with XSLT.
