I just googled looking for a comparison between XOM and dom4j (what i am 
currently using) and only found your comparisoin to JDOM. Looking at the 
XOM information at your site (http://www.cafeconleche.org/XOM/), it 
looks like XOM and dom4j are similar. Is that the case?

I am using less memory after switching from JDOM to dom4j. Would there 
be a similar benefit going from dom4j to XOM? Do you have any critiques 
of dom4j in favor of XOM? (I am open to switching.)
