Objet : [xml-dev] Handling very large instance docs

Before we dive into a local bespoke development, is anyone aware
of any tools that can efficiently handle browsing and editing of
very large XML documents (2-300Mb of repeating structure at the top
end) on "normal" PC workstation hardware?

At the very least I need to be able to sequentially process a large
document and extract an identified sub-tree (ideally denoted by an
XPath expression) for run-of-the-mill tools to manipulate. I assume
such a beast would need to be based on a SAX parser.

I suppose my other option is to dump the doc into an XML-native
database and get at the fragments via a query mechanism. Any suggestions
gratefully received...
