parse an xml file from the local filesystem

The users local filesystem, or the servers?

In the former case no (you would need to get them to uplaod it first). 
In the later case (which I guess is what you mean as it has a leading 
/)... not sure. :-(

"We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the 
world -- its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; 
see the world as it is and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by 
intelligence and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror 
that comes from it." [Bertrand Russell]

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the 
human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of 
ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant 
that we should voyage far.
The sciences, each straining in its own direction, has hitherto harmed 
us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge 
will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful 
position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or 
flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
- HP Lovecraft

ok ok, I admit it! I only really answered to throw the lovecraft quote 
back at your russell quote, but hey, its Friday! :-) (by a whole hour)
