Country – Capital XML List using GeoNames

Was looking around trying to find an XML file of countries and capital cities.

Initially came accross some rather incomplete xml files with the ISO two digit country codes, but so far the best info I found is from GeoNames.

If your using Flash/Flex, it doesnt matter that their crossdomain.xml is outdated, because they use REST web services.

e.g.  http://ws.geonames.org/countryInfo?

In flex, you can use a HttpService to specify request attributes, good example here. Very handy.

    Another important put into practice of the delegate server is to reduce the computer equipment cost. An organization may have innumerable systems on the but network or below power of a single server, prohibiting the promise of an individual family to the Internet for each system. In such a patient, the lone systems can be connected to in unison delegate server, and the delegate server connected to the principal server.
