It can of course be a DOM implementation that sits on top of SAX (e.g. Docuverse). > > 3.

SAXON produces the output as a serial file, you would have to parse it back in to get a tree. SAXON does however implement a portability layer that gives you a protable way of creating a document (you can write an additional driver to support any new DOM implementation). > > 4.

(Actually this is painful, because there's no standard way to subclass Node or Element; it costs heavily in performance and I've been wondering whether the price was worth paying...)
