Does one of the mainstream JavaScript libraries (YUI, jQuery, Dojo) provide a way to serialize a JavaScript object to XML (as text)?

Note: I'd like to transform a generic JavaScript object in general, not just a DOM.

not mainstream, however and I haven't tested it - but thought I'd throw it your way anyway...

@alien109 Thank you for the link! I found a few problems with this code, but it is a good start. I put some comments below in case the author finds this, or if someone wants to improve on this:

* No license is mentioned. (I will try to contact the author about it.)
* Doesn't handle arrays well. (It creates elements <1>, <2>... )
* Fails when an object has a property which value is undefined. I.e. the property exists, but its value is undefined.

Still, it's some great code to start with.
