I wanted to describe what an XML parser is and what it does, at a level more
detailed than hand-waving and quoting dictionary definitions of "parser".
Checked the XML spec and... no use of "parser", only "processor"
(www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml#dt-xml-proc). Perhaps an XML parser is part of an
XML processor. Or perhaps the two are synonymous and we're all a bit sloppy
and "parser" because it sounds more technical than "processor".
But then I looked at http://xml.apache.org and discovered many references to
"XML parser" but very few to "XML processor".
Is there anywhere a description of the difference (if any) between an XML
parser and an XML processor?
