XML can be used to represent a structured, hierarchical, relational data. Please do NOT use it as if it's something like a CSV file. If you're using XML to represent a product availability for the various branches your shopping chain has I should be able to discern which branch has what products based on the position of the item nodes.

But instead what did I get from you? A file where all the XML nodes are pretty much on the SAME DAMN LEVEL! And you're expecting me to parse it like some flat file to get the information I need?

If you wanted me to parse it in the first place why the heck did you bother generating an XML compliant structure? You like angle brackets is it?

Note that you can Post As GUEST as well.
