XML Language Definition Problem

I am trying to design a language definition for XML where corresponding start and close tags are
- creating an automatic outline
- use brace matching

For this, I guess, I would need to use a regular expression that identifies the corresponding closing tag somehow. However, I don't seem to get it how to do that. Is there maybe anyone who can help me out and bring me back on track...?

Either that or iterate back through the tokens using a TokenStream and look for matches.

If I do that, I need to do manual outlining, right? I would rather like to do it automatically. For that, I do need regular expressions, right?

Oh my bad... yes outlining XML will be a little difficult to do since you want to ensure that each tag has the appropriate end tag. I'm not sure our default semantic parser will handle that well. But it's something we hope to support or accomplish with our next major 4.0 parser.
