Parsing has a lot more overhead than just writing out text strings. I suspect the real comparison here may be between a system that does full well-formedness checking and one that doesn't. Many systems can blast XML out pretty quickly using printf or equivalent. They don't necessarily need to call a method for each tag or text node or check well-formedness on output. -- Elliotte Rusty Harold elharo@m...
