Sam, I guess they both come down to whether or not you're using a GUI. In XMLMind, the extra typing required doesn't matter, and having explicit tags means that they appear on the drop-down list of available elements, which would be less intuitive if we had a generic tag, because the user would have to remember what the available options were. I agree that were we typing the XML by hand, a generic tag element with attributes would make more sense. Thanks, Geraint.
