Re: XSLT processor performance
* Lars Marius Garshol | | So the document, and Sablotron's treatment of it, are both legal. | However, a good XSLT engine _should_ include external entities. * Sebastian Rahtz | | just to be clear, it was TransforMiiX, not Sablotron (and I though | they both used Expat?) Sorry, my bad. I think TransforMiiX does use expat, but older versions of expat did not include external entities. You can do it with newer versions, but it requires implementing an extra callback on the part of the application. So it's not enough to just set a flag or something, you have to implement reading data from the entity and pushing it into expat yourself. Expat works this way because a) it's been designed to be incremental, so that the application _has_ to push data to it b) this way expat is independent of the URL framework that is used in the application --Lars M.
