Have a look at the parser conformance test results on my web page at


Those are for SAX interfaces, but many of the packages that can produce
a DOM tree use the same core engine that the SAX API excercises.  That is,
the same level of XML conformance will normally come through DOM.

If anything makes me want to kill a programmer, it's the level of
gratuitous nonconformance that a few of those parsers show!
