Sorry about that, sometimes we're all a bit busy :)

To answer your question: you should only call xmlInitParser() once.

  Actually it's not needed at all in most cases, the first time parsing is
done stuff is initialized when needed.

However, it doesn't hurt to call it multiple times (unless you are running
in a multi-threaded environment, which you don't :), it guards itself
against that.

  Yes, unless you called xmlCleanupParser ()
