 <?xml version="1.0"?> <MEETINGS> <MEETING TYPE="informal"> <MEETING_TITLE>XML In The Real World</MEETING_TITLE> <MEETING_NUMBER>2079</MEETING_NUMBER> <SUBJECT>XML</SUBJECT> <DATE>6/1/2002</DATE> <PEOPLE> <PERSON ATTENDANCE="present"> <FIRST_NAME>Edward</FIRST_NAME> <LAST_NAME>Samson</LAST_NAME> </PERSON> ...
