Close, but not close enough. That said... I have seen a few SAX-style parsers for HTML (the W3C's libwww, just to name an example; I think one comes with Java 2 as well). With such a beast, you could read in HTML, an do the following cool things: 1) Output a simplified XML version which hides the all-too-common HTML composition errors found "in the wild" 2) Writing a stylesheet for such a degraded dialect would be MUCH easier than creating mappings for the whole HTML DTD 3) You could use it to pessimize* the content for handheld devices Dave *) About that "pessimization" - in general, the entire WAP protocol suite is geared toward devices with small screens, little memory, murderous network latencies and bizarre addressing schemes. Saying "optimized" sounds better, but "pessimized" is closer to the truth. XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
