RE: Enlightenment via avoiding the T-word

The example below can be handled easily using Atoms and Molecules design
pattern.  Looking at the example from this perspective, I see:


  name, address, mode, price, quantity


  customer, delivery, product

String Molecules:

  lines, line

Super Molecule


What we need is a XML processing framework that supports molecules and atoms
design pattern.  What we don't need is more complications and fancy
if-but-when-must at what I consider to be lexical slum level.  *argh* I am
starting to sound like Len.
