What happens if i have the tag names with '-' symbol? For example: <first-name> or <last-name>?


Or when i use russian or german tagnames? Is it covered with SimpleXML?


wbr, Vladimir

    It seem to me that SimpleXML will just work like JavaScript hashes, where you can safely write
    myHash.my_key just as long as my_key is a valid identifier.

    I suppose that everyone that does not use ascii-7 alphanumerics will be forced to use something else (I hope I'm wrong).

    I'd suggest to the writers to try out ruby's REXML library, cause that is a kick ass, powerful and free library. And SimpleXML behaviour can be reproduced in REXML with 5 lines of code ;)
