Start with xxml.el:

I'm not Internet-connected as I write, but I guess that one could get my work
version of `xxml.el' as one of:


(depending on symbolic links to be properly set).  If you like to click,
use my `.signature' below to get on my little site, choose `FP etc' on
the left, and proceed from there.  I also have a related Babyl file that
I just put back in the same directory, and which I'll likely synchronise
later today to `www.iro'.

`xxml.el' relies on the PSGML API.  For `xxml.el', colouring is acceptable
as is, indentation is very acceptable, but refilling needs more work, yet
in many cases, it does what I want.  I think `xxml.el' is simple to use.
Comments are welcome, of course.
