> Also DOM should not such a resource hog as it is
Not sure if we should be so hard on it! It is only a parser, and it's up
to you what you do with it. For example, I could imagine a model where
you have a number of instantiations of DOM as sort of caches. You then
read and write data to a relational database, converting to and from
nodes in the XML tree as required.
Your searching and selection algorithms would have to retrieve from the
database, not inside DOM - which is no way going to be optimised enough,
anyway. Of course there's loads of ways you could implement this, but
eventually someone will give us a nice black box, and away we go. In the
meantime, give DOM a break!
