Re: Question of performance
The xslt processor might have to go back and forth within the xml document, so any approach except having it all in memory would be very tricky. Like sorting a very large file that can't be sorted all in memory, it could be done, but the xslt processors aren't at that point yet. Perhaps you can preprocess your xml file into smaller pieces, then combine the results afterwards.

Along the same lines, I have a really big (200Mb+) XML document that needs to be parsed by a small (10 or so lines) XSL document on a Windows machine. I have tried the Microsoft COM object in some VBScript, but it seems to want to load the entire XML document into memory, and if much of anything else is running on the system it more or less pukes, and at the very least takes several minutes just loading the document before any processing begins. Is there a better way of doing this? Java is not installed on the system, though we are not opposed to doing so if there is better performance.
