John Cowan has a DOMParser that walks a DOM tree and fires SAX events
at <URL: http://www.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/>

Also, one strategy I've used in cases where the area that needs to be
repeated is very small is to simply record the SAX events in a vector
and do a sort of playback. (Used this to implement a general SAX
DocumentHandler that chooses between several different DocumentHandlers
based on the name of the document element.)
