Sure. DOM and SAX are totally different - comparing them is like
comparing apples and oranges. I don't think anyone would want to
implement SAX on top of DOM - I mean, one of the design goals of SAX
was to avoid having the whole document in memory :).
I might start fiddling around with a simple non-validating SAX parser
tonight, and see where it gets me. Of course, if anyone else has written
one that would save me some time...
