XSLT over SAX?
Has anyone put any thought or effort into basing an XSLT processor on SAX? This would have the benefit of providing a standard syntax for performing some simple transformations of large files. I'm guessing that a proactive analysis of a stylesheet for things that require non-sequential access to the DOM would be difficult (in some cases requiring knowledge of the XML instance). So instead, it could just start processing the XML instance as a stream, and if/when the stylesheet requires an operation entailing moving backward in "time", it would raise a runtime exception. -mda XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
