[IronPython] DOM binding for .NET?

Hi Seo,

System.Xml is compliant with both DOM Level 1 and Level 2.  You can find the
the SDK documentation @

In addition, as per the intro into the above linked page,

The *System.Xml* namespace provides standards-based support for processing

The supported standards include:


   XML 1.0 - http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-xml-19980210 - including DTD

   XML Namespaces - http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/ - both stream
   level and DOM.

   XSD Schemas - http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema

   XPath expressions - http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath

   XSLT transformations - http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt

   DOM Level 1 Core - http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-DOM-Level-1/

   DOM Level 2 Core - http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2/

In addition, there is a good presentation series located @
covers all of the XML-related technlogies for .NET.  While the
presentations are somewhat old, the content is still relevant.

In regards to the conformance reference, I will need to dig around, but I
know Joshua Allen has posted a lot of content in the past to places like the
XML-Dev mailing list that discuss at least some of the conformance related
questions.  Let me dig around a bit and follow-up with a couple of links.

In addition to this, the entire org.w3.dom Java bindings are available as
part of IKVM.NET in the IKVM.GNU.Classpath.dll, and as such, you can utilize
these as well inside of any .NET accessible language.  To implement this is
C#, use the same syntax for classpath~namepath that you would in java,
replacing (obviously) import with using.

Hope this helps!
