The armory information *is* in XML. There's an XSLT applied in your browser. If you connect with an unknown user agent, the stylesheet may get applied server side, but if for instance you were to use wget with a user agent of Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; bla bla bla) you can fetch the XML for characters (queried by realm and toon name) and items (queried by item ID).I was working for a little while on a "quickarmory" site for my own use which would keep a local cache of sheets I'd requested, and would transform the data sheet into something a little less "ooh I'm a gamer I can't pay attention to anything without t3h grafix".Unfortunately, they don't do something sane like report the actual last updated time for the data in the HTTP headers, so the caching part isn't really viable (unless you want to sacrifice correctness, which I don't, so nyah)
