I have seen a great deal of discussion recently about converting return sets
from SQL ( cursors, recorsets, datawindows) into XML strings. All of the
examples extract the column names of the return set and create XML with
them. While this method is probably more efficient for storing and
retrieving XML data in a relational database it is inferior when it comes to
navigating the DOM.  I would much prefer to work with attributes (when they
make sense) than a myriad of embeded elememts. Has anyone else recognized
this as an issue and if so how did you resolve it...TIA
