How about using a SimpleXML model and a SimpleXML serializer?

For input, maybe a parser that supports simple event-driven processing 
and also can generate the SimpleXML model, whatever that is.


PS: probably everyone on this list is already aware of this, but SAX 
stands for Simple API for XML.  To support MicroXML, we would want an 
even simpler one; Micro-API: MAX? uAX?.  Probably can be a strict subset 
of SAX using the same names for the same things, and just eliminating 
those that are no longer part of MicroXML.

If there is some even simpler way of processing tree-structured data 
that doesn't require events or data structures, I'm all for it, but I'm 
not sure I know what that is.

I will admit to having written an XML-based templating system in Perl 
using only regular expressions, but I don't want to do that again.
