Hi folks,

I have recently revived some code which parses the gift-log.mrml file for long-term learning purposes. I have discovered that in some gift version that has been released since I last used this stuff, code has been introduced that writes a comment block to the gift-log.mrml each time the server is started or a message is send, e.g.:

<!-- This instance of the GIFT was started on -->
<!-- Fri Jul 16 12:12:06 2004
<!-- PID 2388 -->

<!-- The following message was sent by Peer INET Address:
At: Fri Jul 16 12:12:26 2004

Unfortunately there is a problem. These comment blocks appear *before* the

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>

line, which must start an XML document. Consequently they cause Perl's XML parser to choke. Could this order please be reversed?
