I'm pretty new to libxml2 (2.6.29) and have therefor a question about
memory handling. When I add a new child to a tree e.g.
xmlNewChild(root_node, NULL, BAD_CAST "test", BAD_CAST testcontent);
Does the function xmlNewChild copy the content "testcontent" to a new
buffer? So that a free(testcontent) is safe.

  xmlNewChild(xmlNodePtr parent, xmlNsPtr ns,
              const xmlChar *name, const xmlChar *content);

the values of name and content are not used as is, they are copied
internally. If you dynamically allocated content then its your responsability
to free it.

That's the behavior I expected and like ;-)
Thanks for clarification.
