   that must be because of xmlChar definitions, from a glance at

Created this:

I forgot to mention, on top of using BAD_CAST, we also need to
use xmlStrcmp on the "xmlChar *"s, if you want to fix that that'd
be great, otherwise I'll eventually get around to it :)

Yes, I will. I hate warnings :)

I already fix that, but what about when we need to cast a xmlChar into a
gchar as in claim_string() ?

We could define a new cast

#define CAST_BAD (gchar *)

there should be no big problem since gchar and xmlChar are both UTF-8

I really do not know what is the cleaner way to solve this:
 * leave everything as is it and use these casts everywhere they are
needed or
 * replace xmlChar to gchar and use wrapers for libxml functions

Comments are welcome :)
