Gee, nearly three years ago now! Where did I put that


The toolkit I mention in the post is now at pyxie.sourceforge.net.
Henrys tool that allows you you mix'n'match event/tree modes
is LT XML.

In prehistory (anybody know what happened to it?) there was an
SGML processing language called Balise that had built-in support
for what today would be called Mixed SAX/DOM.

Then there was the truly funky Metamorposis and didn't James Clarks
NSGMLS have a way of blocking processing until required
sub-trees became available? Am I dreaming or did Joe English's COST
also allow you to mix modes?...

So much lore there to be learned from but of course nobody not of
independent means has any time because all our available cognitive
cycles are consumed with the latest NOTE, WDs and RECS.
