Oh my, I dug around in Apple's Core Foundation XML support today. Its not a pretty sight, not by a long shot. Its XML support is around the level of the DOM level 1, i.e. you can do namespaces, but you get to do all the work yourself. Ten lines of C# blows out into around a 100 lines of objective-C and that's doing the evil trick of looking for hard coded prefixes. I'm hoping that someone has an objective-C wrapper for expat.
