    I built libxml 2.6.7 this morning and ran some apps,
didn't complain ;-)

Ok, I saw "xmlDocFree()" in the API reference for tree.h, but thankyou
for pointing me to "xmlFree()" (which I deduce from your mail is what
I should use) ;-D

But I am still confused about xmlNodeListGetString(), the example
code (doc/example.html) hasn't changed and is quite unclear about
who is responsable for the returned memory location.

Am I correct to assume that "xmlNodeListGetString()" will always
allocate a new string in memory that can safely be freed with "free()" ?
(because this is what the example seems to assume, just seems strange to me)

or does it return a pointer to a private buffer that must be copied
if the user whishes to keep this buffer after xmlFree(doc) ?
