How can I call an external application (executable or library function) from an XML document?

    You can't. XML documents are just text. You could write a SAX handler, for example, in Java or Python or any other language that has a SAX library which executes other functions or programs based on the elements and attributes in the XML tree.

    You might be interested in o:xml, a new programming language in XML: http://www.o-xml.org/

    Note that even o:xml requires a special interpreter. XML by itself is not executable.
