[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Exactly what is inefficient about putting open tags in a stack as you see them
and popping them off as the tag is closed with soem flag that halts this
process when withing CDATA sections? Is there some sophisticated nuance I've

I mean if Office XP can get away with all the parsing and stuff it does for
Smart Tags and spell/grammar checking, etc. I don't see why a much simpler
task like keeping track of open XML tags would be deemed as hard to implement

If I have equipment which performs an important function, it will not
be activated by a lever that someone could trigger by accidentally falling
on when fatally wounded.
