We put a demo up a year ago that does this on the client side using
XMLJ, our Standard ML-based XML processing library.
This runs on the JVM in the browser. Uses SAX or DOM-built trees.





for some blurb. Requires Netscape 4 or MSIE 4 (not Mac).

I've recently ported the combinator parser to Java for the
non-functional programmers. When I get shot of the short-term
things I'm doing (I can't believe it's a year since I did the demo),
I'll put something up to read/download. We've switched now
to server-side XML processing, I find it more interesting (my
opinion only of course) and there's loads to do. Also no hassle
with browsers, they really are the most shoddy pieces of software
ever written.
