GetFeatureInfo GML response format parser
|Reported by:||mpriour||Owned by:||ahocevar|

GetFeatureInfo responses in GML format from a number of map server / feature server applications can not be directly parsed using the current OpenLayers.Format.GML implementation, nor any of its subclasses.
The challenge, however, is that the GML GetFeatureInfo response format has no OGC schema nor any implementation guidelines from that organization. In fact, it is an optional response format. Due to the lack of standards, GML GetFeatureInfo responses can be highly variable. Therefore either a broadly generic approach to parsing is needed or numerous "flavors" of GML GetFeatureInfo format readers would need to be created.
