I believe that one of the advantages of SAX parsers is that they report
parsing events via callbacks and 
can consume far less memory than DOM based parsers that build an in
memory parse tree. 

My question has to do with when validation errors are reported by SAX
parsers. For example, if the closing tag of the root element is missing
from an XML document, would a SAX parser only report that the document
was invalid, after it had reported all the other valid parsing events
for the rest of the document?
