I need to parse an XML document, but I am finding limitations with the TXMLDocument component in Delphi 6.

I hope that someone can indicate a way around these problems, but if not a suggestion of a good solid alternate XML component will win the points.

Here's a simple example of the kind of document I need to parse...

<template>
<logo/>
<p>Here is some <b>bolded</b> text</p>
<p>A field gets inserted here <field name="afield" width="10" align="right"/></p>
</template>

When I try to traverse the nodes there are problems because of the embedded tags (e.g. <b> inside <p>) that make it hard to get to the text (e.g. the "Here is some " part).

Ideas?

I'm always a little reluctant to use any sort of third party components, but I'm going to try put the destructor XML parser.  So far it looks promising...

In the end I have gone back to the built in XML component.  I found that with a bit of tweaking it was able to do what I wanted.

The destructor implementation was okay, but didn;t quite give me the level of control I wanted.
