- Thread-topic: [xml-dev] Xerces, XML Parsers and support for creating Documents.
If you were using the .NET Framework classes(also available on FreeBSD)
you would be able to utilize this functionality with ease.
public class Sample
public static void Main()
//Create the XmlDocument.
XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
doc.LoadXml("<book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>" +
"<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
//Save the document to a file.
which seems a lot less cumbersome than the code you just showed. You can
obtain the .NET Framework
or the shared source CLI implementation at
