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

The .NET v2 parser is faster that the old C++ parser mostly because
the C++ parser was a 1st gen XML parser while the .NET parser is ~3rd
gen.  Also, the C++ parser had to have namespace processing layered,
because XML Namespaces as they are known now, didn't exist until the
core of the parser was long done.  If you took the same basic
principles that make the .NET parser so fast, I am extremely confident
you could build a faster C++ parser.
