Document XML responses

Maybe I'm just missing it, but I would really appreciate some documentation on the XML responses from the API.

As an example, I couldn't find what the various fields in the Customer XML represent, and it took some time to find this thread (http://support.cheddargetter.com/discussions/problems/48-display-mu...) in which Marc explained:

"You may see multiple subscription nodes in the xml. That just represents a history of subscription activity (i.e., how many times the customer had changed plans). The current subscription information is the first subscription node."

That makes perfect sense, but it was certainly not obvious just by looking at the data, and I was puzzled about what multiple subscription nodes represented. Some overview of the data would be very helpful.

Thank you!

    Agreed. Documentation specifically on the format of the xml is a bit lacking. This usually isn't a problem since wrapper libraries abstract the information for you. Of course, this doesn't help library authors. That said, we do endeavor to include more on the subject in the near future. In the meantime, as always, we're happy to answer any questions you have.
