If you keep that tool limited to extracting only a few tags at a time, I think it could be far more useful to you than it was to me. I made the mistake of trying to get it to get EVERYTHING at once and got overly frustrated with it. You'll also find the tool has a neat byproduct of being an incidental debugging tool as well, finding some xml errors (duplications that shouldn't exist etc...) that aren't critical but can create some odd game effects. If you see what I mean, don't be afraid to bring up what you've found. (but we should move this discussion to another thread so that we don't keep hijacking the point it was originated for. ) Thanks again for your help!
