in reply to PERL AND XML

If all what you wanted was to be able to open the file in Excel, XML is sort of over-engineered. Why not just go CSV file format?

    It depends on whether you want a spreadsheet or lines of data. Granted, most on the time lines of data work but saying CSV is a spreadsheet is like saying Excel is a database. With the right XML, you can also create functional cells (SUM, AVERAGE, etc. ) and with some work, PivotTables and Charts.
