maybe you could expand a bit on your thought: My project uses XML::Parser and XML::DOM to do CGI
If you are rendering XML to HTML and want to use perl, like mirod says, check out AxKit.
If you are just using XML for config file information, you could just stick with XML::Parser and skip the whole Xerces mess. Honestly, I've been watching for the Xerces Perl thing and they've been talking about the "coming soon for RedHat 6.0" for quite a while. I wonder at its state.
For XML with Perl, you should check out davorg's book on "Data Mudging with Perl." He's devoted a chapter discussing perl and XML... It's worth a read as this is, I believe, one of the first books to mention XML and perl and give examples.
IMHO, Java still has a bit of an edge when it comes to XML processing. The great tools at CPAN are rapidly closing that gap though.
