I assume the term is a hangover from "SGML processor".  SGML processors
had to do a good deal more than parsing.  Technically, XML processors do
too, but most of the additional processing is optional.

Clear?  Huh!  Why a four-year-old child         John Cowan

and find me a four-year-old child.  I           http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
can't make head or tail out of it.
