Ah, I wasn't attributing it to you. Sorry if I mis-spoke.

I was referring to the more recent one by Simon that started the
thread, covering various modern (or at least maintained, up-to-date and
hopefully reliable) XML and HTML parsing technologies for Perl on CPAN like
HTML::Parser, Mojo::DOM, XML::LibXML (which I should note I currently maintain,
though I certainly did not originate it), etc. I don't expect a post from 1998
to be relevant any more because back then I believe CPAN was not yet
commonly accepted, search.cpan.org did not exist yet (to say nothing of
http://metacpan.org/ ) and I'm not sure how well even HTML::Parser was up to
the task back then (and was the year when the XML recommendation was released
and before it gained a mass adoption and popularity
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML#History ). I hope non-Perl-experts here
don't feel left out from all the mention of Perl-specific technologies and
tools, but you don't need to know all that in that case.
