One newbie to another - YES LOL  Just kidding

If it were me.....I would look for something already in Squeak - like 
XMLElement  in the XML-Parser category - and either use it straight out 
of the box or subclass it. (Notice it already has attributeAt: 
attributeName put: attributeValue)

Just my two cents.
