Instead of using SAX to preprocess the data, you could use STX:
You would have to create a pipeline that does the following:
XML parser -> STX -> XSLT
This way, the XSLT transformer would work on a potentially much smaller
document. You can create such pipelines "by hand" using the SAX API, or use
higher-level tools (look for "XPL pipelines" in Google).

Sorry if this is a FAQ- please point me in the right direction if so.
Let's say my xml is this:
If I only mainly want to work with <onlyImportantItems>, is there a way that
I can filter out all the other data I don't need when I do the transform?
So for instance, I don't want the XML parser searching through all the
garbage, I want it cut down to just the data I need. Can I do something
like this at the beginning of all my xsl sheets?
