   Re: SAX parser for SGML?

Although not Java, I've used James Clark's SX utility 
(http://www.jclark.com/sp/sx.htm) in processing
pipelines to go SGML -> XML -> SAX/DOM/PYX.

Works well. I use it a lot when marking up stuff by hand as I can take best 
advantage of SGMLs tag minimization features but produce fully tagged XML 
from it automatically.

Sometimes an SGML parser is a better alternative to cutting code (even in 
Python:-) to do XML uptranslation!
