My parser Lark (the world's first XML parser, not worked on since 1998, sob) had an advantage because even though it was in Java it had a preprocessor as a side-effect of the way it was built. So it had another incarnation named Larval which did DTD validation but *none* of that code went into the nonvalidating version, which stayed down under 50K class files IIRC. Could've been smaller too since it had code to build & traverse a simple DOM-like tree. -Tim
