But, whenever you do a transformation, those SAX events need to be 
converted to the XSL processors internal DOM - a parse.

I think cocoon is a cool project. The way our CMS works does not lend 
itself to recieve the benefits cocoon would offer. And, don't know if

document function. I use the document function quite a bit and, unless 
it has changed, cocoon tended to discourage its use.
