Re: [xml-dev] Parsing Streaming XML Incrementally

you might want to have a look at OmniMark (www.omnimark.com),
that is a streaming XML programming language
(a lot more high level than SAX is, it works on hierarchical element 
events, rather than on tag-events)
that knows how to recover from wellformdness errors as you please
the language is http and tcp aware, so you can stream information in and out
I can always provide you with more information if you are interested
