   RE: [xml-dev] XSLT with DOM or SAX ?

XSLT processors will in general build a tree representation of the source
document in memory. And in general, many of them will build a tree
representation that is much more efficient than using a general-purpose DOM.
So there's no point building an inefficient DOM tree rather than letting the
XSLT processor build its own. But this advice may depend on the XSLT
processor you are using.
