I agree with Bill. Right now I'm writing regex to rip through a non-XML
hierarchical document structure, looking for particular leaf nodes. It's
the flat structure underneath the hierarchy that I want, the same flat
structure that's presented when this file's data is shown graphically.
Sometimes hierarchy gets in the way.
