Yep -- but far better than the only one I saw (the February Java Report)
which benchmarked only the DOM getElementsByTagName() method, and which had
a notable set of serious factual and methodological flaws.

SAX and DOM performance should be separately weighed, and balanced against
conformance.  As they say, it's easy to be fast if you don't do it right!

As I recall, xml.com had an article looking at some performance comparisons
(C, Java, Python) a while back.
