Just spit out the information as strings and leave it up to the reciever to put it where it feels the best. Don't assume that people want to 'program in SAX', in my opinion. Its job should be to get the parms in and get the data out in an API that people can write generically to, and introduce as little overhead as is reasonable in the process. ---------------------------------------- Dean Roddey Software Weenie IBM Center for Java Technology - Silicon Valley roddey@u... xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
