Re: [xml-dev] Compressed XML and XSLT

An XQuery implementation that supports document projection, such as 
DataDirect XQuery, creates only the portion of the input document needed 
to process the query. Document projection was originated by the Galax 
people, and their processor was the first I know of to do document 
projection. If you use streaming output, you can be very efficient in 
your memory usage. I've successfully queried 60 Gig files, not instantly 
but reasonably quickly.

I know Saxon can do XSLT transforms in this range. See 
http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/sourcedocs/serial.html (or wait 
for Mike to chip in ;->)
