It stores the files in a .jml file, but appears to be encrypted.  I'd like to develop something to be able to search across users that I've chatted with, as well as, across multiple days.  It's difficult to remember when you need to find something what day it was you were chatting and its inconvenient to go in and save each day as a separate text file.

There is no standard message history format. The .jml files are written
out by the Jabber Messenger client produced by Jabber Inc. They are
encrypted for a reason, as recently described here:
