Why do you need XML ?
I would propose to use JSON if you're not bound to any existing XML file
This is questioned regularly in this list. I can go a step further, and
question "why Json?". After all, its format is made to be easily parsed
But in both cases, there are tons of XML and Json data to be parsed,
produced by 3rd party libraries. From XHTML or RSS data to StackOverflow
stats or Twitter data.
Beside, OP wrote: "I've got some legacy code", so he is clearly in the
"can't do without it" camp.
