    Das ist sehr schön…vielen Dank!!


    Many thanks for this, it saves a lot of time to edit xml by hand. What is the pity that Ubuntu do not have integrated tools to do this.

    Have no enough money to buy a car? Worry not, because that is real to take the business loans to resolve all the problems. Therefore take a car loan to buy everything you want.
