[Libreoffice-qa] How should Calc's WEBSERVICE function work?

Hello @ll,
either I do not understand this function (which might be ... ;) ) or 
I found a bug in it ... :(

When I
1. start Calc
2. then enter, for example, "=WEBSERVICE 
in e.g. cell A1 (I have tried it with the German "=WEBDIENST 

I get a cell with a lot of XML data in A1. Is this a feature or a 
bug? I had expected, that Calc would insert all the data in 
different cells, but without the XML code around ... :(

BTW: Why are there that much M$ Excel functions flooding Pootle? It 
is really time consuming to find out, if they are patented, or 
protected by any other rights ... :(
Have a nice day
