I think that James was talking about going from bytes representing a Unicode character encoding, not a binary encoding. There should be no platform dependencies in that case. > I doubt very much Sun can get an order of magnitude improvement on > all platforms of interest, much less with all documents of > interest. In my experience, actual XML parsing generally takes so little time in a real-world project that optimizing it to zero would still bring no noticeable gain. The only exception would be something dealing with a constant, fat stream of XML data in real time (news feeds are too low-volume to qualify). All the best, David
