I wasn't asking for this, I was asking for clarification. From the
tone of your previous mail it seemed like you had some insight about
the details of the design that made using XML a problem. From your
latest response it seems to be a lack of knowledge about XML...

No. Again, based on my review of the design, I don't see an
issue with using XML. It would really just be adding a
different flavor of text archive -- just much more complex.
