# XmlElement¶

This package provides support for XML files an XML element is something which either has the form: <tagname attributes> content </tagname> or <tagname attributes/> where content may be a sequence of sub-elements or unstructured text
coerce(x) outputs x as a list of strings. Each element in the list represents a new line. This is an alternative to creating a long single string with ‘newline’ embedded in it.
empty?(el) returns true is this element does not contain anything
outputVRML(rp, f1) writes the element as VRML2. VRML2 is not xml but it has the same semantics and node names as X3D but a different syntax so it makes sense to create an XML structure and then format the output differently.
xmlElement(name, elements, attributes) construct an element with structured elements
xmlElement(name, txt, attributes) construct an element with unstructured text
