Hi, In the teleconference we just had about the netCDF-4/HDF5 project, someone (Quincey? Bob?) asked about NcML. I recommend this document to see some of the intended uses for NcML: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/caron/xml/NetcdfDataset.html Currently this sort of thing is supported for Java, but ultimately we hope to make it possible from C as well. Maybe you also have these kinds of uses in mind for your XML representation of HDF5 data. --Russ
