Thanks to Nick Boland, Dmitri Zakharov and Jens Hesselbach for reporting this issue.

I removed hints to Holger Dors from the About Box. Holger helped me to create the idea for this site. However, he is too busy himself to contribute any code. Please watch out his incredible RazorLame project on Holger's homepage. RazorLame is a Windows frontend for the LAME MP3 encoder. It's .Free and it comes with full source code.

If you want to be notified about updates to the XML Parser, just send me a mail and let me know. I promise that I will not use your e-mail address for any other purpose than this!
