      libxml - library used to parse XML files

      The libxml library is used to parse XML files. Its internal document
      representation is as close as possible to the DOM (Document Object
      Model) interface, an API for accessing XML or HTML structured
      documents.  The libxml library also has a SAX-like interface, which is
      designed to be compatible with expat(1).  NOTE: SAX, the Simple API
      for XML, is a standard interface for event-based XML parsing,
      developed collaboratively by the members of the XML-DEV mailing list,
      currently hosted by OASIS.  The expat library is a XML 1.0 parser
      written in C, which aims to be fully conforming. It is currently not a
      validating XML processor.  The libxml library now includes a nearly
      complete XPath implementation. The XPath (XML Path Language) is a
      language for addressing parts of an XML document, designed to be used
      by both XSLT and XPointer.  The libxml library exports Push and Pull
      type parser interfaces for both XML and html.
