Although the example you gave does not exploit XML to its fullest potential, it's a welcome departure from entirely unmarked text files with pipes used as separators.

I've seen XML that encodes list indexes in tag names, like this:
<item3>78</item3>
<item1>34</item1>
<item0>12</item0>
<item2>56</item2>
So I don't think your situation is quite as bad Big Grin | :-D

I think that your answer greatly depends on what you are planning to do with this data, and how hard it would be for the provider to change their code to generate a more XML-like XML for you. If your provider is a utility company in the United States, you will almost certainly be better off just working with the flawed format. Otherwise, you risk spending countless hours convincing them to change the format for you, and then ending up working with that flawed format anyway Frown | :-(
