It's a popular trolling meme to run around and tell people that if you
have a HTML document and want to turn that into a DOM Document, that's
a well-documented process, but doing the same with XML documents, that
is not so well-documented, there is much uncertainty about it. The two
of you have the same process in mind, Henri Sivonen just thought it im-
portant to draw everybody's attention to this meme.
