Hi Daniel

Thanks very much for your reply about DTDs and SAX.

Does the XML Reader API do HTML too? I couldn't find anything saying it  
does or it doesn't. We need to parse both XML and HTML.

Hum, no. Though there is nothing really specific which would not work
with HTML. Actually you could parse the HTML normally, and use
xmlReaderNewWalker() on the doc to have a reader working on an html
file, but that requires to fully parse it.
Adding HTML support would probably as simple as just creating the 4
new entry points htmlReaderNew... like their xml counterparts
and just calling the HTML initialization instead.
