When you say "keep information about where the real XML tag exist in the XML file" does
this give it a location inside the file say for nested elements?
I am currently working on a project with the requirements like:
<foo>This is some <bar/> text here</foo>
<bar/> is actually a database call (not using processing instructions), and I need to
keep track of "This is some" and "text here". Does your parser work in this manner?
