That's exactly what I thought as well, and so I created an XML library that
was built that is pure MetaTalk/Transcript for managing and parsing XML
using regular expressions... just "start using" and then call the commands
in there... The Basic version is free and supports functions for reading
XML, and there's also a Standard version that does more and opens up the
scripts for you to look at and configure for your own use for a nominal
price.

If you're interested, you can take a look at it and the online documentation
of the functions at:

I know what you mean... I'm thinking of creating a tutorial for regex aimed
at MC/Rev users...
