InitializeXMLParser


creates an XMLParser object that has a list of entities corresponding to the contents of and can be used on XML documents that have a root element root.
  • To use , you first need to load the XML Package using .
  • can be used to preload a DTD. If many documents with the same DTD are to be loaded repeatedly, a pre-initialized parser can speed up processing time.
Initialize a MathML parser (with a preloaded DTD):
The pre-initialized MathML parser is much faster than reloading the DTD:
For validation, a DOCTYPE declaration does not need to be present when using a pre-initialized parser:
ReleaseXMLParser frees up resources when the parser is done:
Needs["XML`"]
