    Agreed. For example, a technique I've recently been using with
increasing frequency is to "inject" an HTML form data into an XSLT
processing stream using SAX, rather than converting the form-data into XML,
and then transforming the XML representation of the form.

SAX  and processors such as Xalan make this sort of processing very easy.
