The help and movies download system and the XPF filter use the DOM
interface. Other existing code is written using DOM interfaces but

would be better using DOM interfaces or not.

OTOH I was thinking getting wxWindows to /write/ their XML contents back
should probably be contributed to wxWidgets (given that's what reads

Note there is some limited XML handling in wx itself. It's probably
insufficient for what you want, but I thought I'd mention it.
