A SAX2-like implementation (both interfaces and the parser drivers)
in "plain" C++ would be very nice....
In all of the talk of doing a library(ies), I think the original
poster's point was somewhat lost - if the regression tests produced
their data as a fairly straightforward XML document, then the HTML
table on the website could be automatically generated via XSLT, while
the results would be in a format amenable for further analysis.
The only "tools" needed for this are std::ostream<< for creating the
XML results doc, the XSLT transform for creating the HTML exactly as
it currently appears on http://www.boost.org/status/cs-win32.html
(for example), and an off-the-shelf XSLT processor like SAXON to run
