I grabbed the mozilla source and binaries for other purposes, but was
curious as to the XML support.  While I haven't had much chance to play
with it, it handled the two XML documents at
http://www.mozilla.org/rdf/doc/xml.html without deleting all my files
or causing my hard drive to belch smoke.

Which is not to say that it's *stable*.  Trying to read the XML versions
of the XML spec made the program blow sky high, as did trying to read
the XML version of the Quran.  Definitely a work in progress.
