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.

Hi Lisa,

I'm really surprised to hear that you had troubles with Saxon on a 30MB
  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... :)
