  <P>The Metacat Server stores arbitrary XML 
30
  documents in a relational 
31
  database without foreknowledge of the document schema.  It does this by implementing
32
  the DOM within the table structure of the relational database.
33
  Metacat also performs optimized free-text 
34
  and structured 
35
  searches across the entire document collection. Metacat provides 
36
  standardized interfaces to client software for document processing, storing 
37
  and searching.
