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 ()
This is explained in


Thank you, Daniel.
Defacto i havn't searched the doc of the memory-interface for that problem.
Silly me, cause that's a good point to search (if one have the right
perspective...  8)
