SAX is a parser API, not a parser. Most parsers supply this API.
Unless you need a tree model of the document, you can write your
code around the SAX API and then plug in any parser you want,
such as Sun's, IBM's, Aelfred (www.microstar.com), XP (www.jclark.com)
Some parsers such as Sun's and IBM's also provide the DOM API, which
is tree-based, if that's more useful to your application.
