Please keep in mind the following points:
1) That test was based on an early draft of the Fast Infoset standard
(called X.695 at that time). The Fast Infoset draft has changed a lot since
2) The primary objective of that test program was to measure size. The
speed results obtained are hard to evaluate, although they are always better
than Xerces/C 2.2 parsing XML. I believe that the code could be optimized
to achieve a higher speed, especially with the new draft of the Fast Infoset
