   Re: [xml-dev] XML Parsing using DOM parser

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The answer might be a simple, but it is hard to give any advice without 
knowing how you are using the document, how it is structured, and what 
kind of changes to the document you frequently do, etc.

The answer might be a sax app or a xml db like dbXML (now Xindice) 

Tell us some more!
