Sounds like a cop-out.

1. What is the point of parsing HTML if it is treated like dumb XML without an intelligent spec-aware layer on top of that (at least optionally)?

2. What alternative do people have to libXML if they want to generate a “real” DOM from HTML?

3. Why document an “HTML” mode if it isn’t really parsing HTML? Per HTML, there really ought to be a TBODY node, no ifs, ands, or buts.


Wow. You sound like an ass.

In case you didn't notice, libxml is free open-source software. If you don't like its feature set, then:

1) Politely ask for someone to add the features you need.
2) Add the features yourself.
3) Start a new project from the ground up.
4) Find some other project that does what you want.
5) Go pound sand.

For you, I recommend #5.
