Xerces-C++ is a validating XML parser written in a portable subset of
C++.  Xerces-C++ makes it easy to give your application the ability
to read and write XML data. A shared library is provided for parsing,
generating, manipulating, and validating XML documents. Xerces-C++ is
faithful to the XML 1.0 recommendation and associated standards (DOM
1.0, DOM 2.0, SAX 1.0, SAX 2.0, Namespaces, XML Schema Part 1 and
Part 2).  It also provides experimental implementations of XML 1.1
and DOM Level 3.0.  The parser provides high performance, modularity,
and scalability.
