Re: [xml-dev] Speed in Languages and Browser Architectures

which of course is also a major weakness of SQL.

There is a deep  philosophical issue here.

If I write a Java VM in C why can I write a program in Java that can run 
faster that a functionally equivalent program in C? (or assembler for 
that matter).

Is there a permathread for this?

The implication is that Java can create a sequence of instructions that 
C can't.
