I would appreciate having such a script. I have a similar problem. I am using a file that was started 12-13 years ago when I was totally clueless about citing sources. All of the old data came from family members memories. Now I am trying to get the database in good shape to post online. I have a little over 300 people to enter that same source.

Would anyone be willing to write a quick XML parsing script to fix
this guys problem? It's just a matter of looking for <event>,<place>
etc where there is no <source> tag and putting one in with an
reference to the source... It's regex beyond me, but could be done.
