Hi all,

I have a need to read an XML file into a DOM tree, however certain 
elements in the tree are large and not relevent to my application, and I 
would like to filter them out while I parse the XML file.

All the examples and docs I can find describe either parsing the entire 
XML file into a DOM tree, or doing the entire parsing job yourself using 
a SAX parser.

I have seen some references in the Xerces parser to DOM filters, but I 
cannot find any example code on the correct way to use them. It seems as 
soon as you try and use org.w3c.ls.DomParser, you lose the ability to 
set whether the parser validates or not (or the docs just don't tell you 
how to do it).

Does anyone have any pointers to any concise instructions on how to 
achieve filtering in a DOM parser?
