    Version     : 2.9.1

    Summary     : Library providing XML and HTML support
    Description :
    This library allows to manipulate XML files. It includes support
    to read, modify and write XML and HTML files. There is DTDs support
    this includes parsing and validation even with complex DtDs, either
    at parse time or later once the document has been modified. The output
    can be a simple SAX stream or and in-memory DOM like representations.
    In this case one can use the built-in XPath and XPointer implementation
    to select sub nodes or ranges. A flexible Input/Output mechanism is
    available, with existing HTTP and FTP modules and combined to an
    URI library.
