I don't know PHP well enough. Certainly not any of it's libraries.

Plus, I hate XML. :P
It's so needlessly verbose. What a waste of space. They made it a text file so it'd be human readable, but then everything is so far buried in tags and has so much wrapping around it, that's it's damn near impossible to sort through the information by hand, let alone write one of these files by hand. You might be able to make small edits (changing a number?) but anything beyond that is a huge pain to deal with.

my job in my local group of freinds is to take large loads of data, sort it, format it and give it to them in bite (or byte) size peices.
