RE: Advice on selecting a processor
That was it - Thank you! Thought I had tried that but must not have (doh!). Saxon continues to be the #1 candidate. :) I'm also interested in trying Saxon.NET to measure performance in our environment. Will take a shot and let you know if I need assistance.

I wonder if you didn't specify for the Java VM to use a larger chunk of memory? If that doesn't help then no doubt Mike Kay will be able to help you narrow things down. I'd be interested to see how Saxon.NET (a Saxon 8.0-b port to .NET) performs against your data and stylesheet test(s). Feel free to download the early beta bits (requires the .NET framework) from the projects web site (http://www.x2x2x.org/x2x2x/home) or contact me directly as I would be happy to help test your data and stylesheets on one of our test machines to see if there's a scenario that could help improve performance for you... You've definitely got my curiosity on this as its the larger data file processing that I am personally interested in as far as finding ways to increase performance in real world scenarios. Let me know... :) <M:D/> Lisa Bos wrote: > Can anyone point me to an up-to-date comparison of XSLT processors?
