I appreciate the insights. Never mind then... is it soup yet? I do get
frustrated. I just want to use data types for RPC work. Would have done a
year ago if I could.

I'll stop now, or you'll just do it again. You can't keep a good bolshie
down. Could that be an internal representation of content model for XML
Schema? With the right data structure you could check ordering on the
startElement() event, right? +1 for the inline PI.
In your other posting, you infer that the schema designer can control the
use of DOM vs. streaming. Am I in thinking Schematron implements it's own
internal model of the input and by judicious use of XPath you can control
how big or small that model becomes?
take it easy,
