Further to my work on HaXml announced last month , I've added
two new filters to perform xml:base and xml:lang processing, and fixed up
some minor problems. The code is available at , with browseable
directories at .
I've also developed an RDF/XML parser as part of my Swish project  (the
RDF/XML parser can be used separately from all the other Swish
components); the code is at , with browseable online directories at .
All this has a dependency on some revised network modules .
As part of developing the RDF/XML parser, I believe I have identified a
fairly significant problem with HaXml's handling of whitespace. The core
fix is, I believe, quite easy, but there are knock-on changes required to
the validation module and 20-30 of the test suite test cases. The code
changes could cause some existing HaXml applications to break because they
would result in additional content items in the resulting XML data
containing just whitespace text -- e.g. whitespace appearing between
elements would be returned to the application.
