What I know is that I _HATE_ the DOM. Not only is it clumsy and verbose, I also think it leads to insecure programming (a well placed
comment in the XML can usually crash a DOM program). So I guess you have my position on Xerces ;--)
Doesn't Xerces validate the XML document? If a document is validated
can it still cause a DOM program to crash?
I do not deny that DOM processing has very high overhead
compared to straight XML::Parser, especially with very large
XML documents, but that is the nature of DOM. Easy to
understand the tree concept of data but costly, in terms
of resources, to realize.
TIA for your comments,
