For an alternative, pretty much every language now has SAX API, which can be
used without much work to get ASCII out (DOM can be used but this is rather

One thing that you might want to consider is going straight from XML to
RDBMS, which can be done in Java using JDBC. An example of this (XMLToJDBC)
