Hungary's National Tax and Customs Agency requires real-time XML invoice reporting[^] , so we do it.

It requires the schema designer to know his/her art, because xsd.exe[^] can choke on
XML
<thing>
and
XML
<otherthing>
  <thing>
type brainless design.

Other pain was that while the XML standard is happy with a default namespace, XPath requires a prefix[^].

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
