Re: [xml-dev] parsing markup with Perl

My recollection is that the real crux of the debate amounted to whether "can't do X" and "shouldn't do X" mean the same thing!

has a good track record, based on what I have seen at least. Imho it is too

In an earlier encounter on this list, I got some pushback from people
who said parsing XML with regular expressions worked for them. I
believe them.

I just don't want to maintain their code.
