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,
