Yes, but I doubt that many people (if any) are using the Journals database. If
they do, we could make a straightforward parser for plain-text output from the
Journals database, which is supported by NCBI. See this discussion on the
mailing list:


To resolve this bug, I have modified the parser such that an error is raised
whenever the XML data do not start with the XML declaration (<!xml... ).
Marking this bug as fixed.
