# XML support has been completely redone in PHP 5, all extensions are now focused around the excellent libxml2 library (http://www.xmlsoft.org/).
# SQLite has been bundled with PHP. For more information on SQLite, please visit their website.

Kick a**! expat was severely limited in it's capabilities. libxml is IMHO a great balance between features and performance. SQLLite is a great way for beginners to do a database backend a.la MS Access.

i'm curious -- how is libxml2 better than expat? i haven't (yet) used either for any projects; i used libxml1 two years ago for a jabber client, iirc.

A quick glance through the web pages for both the expat and libxml homepages will explain a lot more than I ever could. The differences, however, are understandable, as expat is supposed to be just an xml parser while libxml is a complete xml library (with xinclude, xslt, validation, xmlsec etc.).
