RE: Saxon for windows?
OK thanks for the information. It means you're passing source XML around which is not going to be as efficient as piping SAX events, but it's probably OK for most purposes. How does the Java VM get initialized: are you incurring the start-up costs for each transformation, or do you have a way of amortizing them? How much control does the client application have over error handling and reporting?
