I said what I said after reading the latest STX spec and only in the context of this discussion (which is "taming SAX"). I have to agree with Uche in saying that STXPath is very nice-- but may not be exactly what we are shooting for. Surely predicates are viable in many cases in partial scans such as: <foo> <bar> <baz/> </bar> <bar test="foo"> <baz/> </bar> </foo> /foo/bar[@test="foo"]/baz But when considering /foo/bar[baz3="test"]/baz1 <foo> <bar> <baz1/> <baz2/> <baz3>test</baz3> </bar> </foo> This predicate's value cannot be ascertained at the point of the baz1 startElement event in a single event look ahead model. At least that is what I heard through the grapevine. Jeff Rafter
