I have released ExCost6666 a new version of the Cost
extension derived from Cost21. This version is in
very alpha stage .... but seems to work !


What is it :

Cost21 was working on ESIS files produced from sgml files by tools
like SP from James Clark. This version doesn't need ESIS files any
more. Instead you should feed it with XML files as it is using Expat
for its internal parser.

As for Cost21, you can then work on your XML files using a tree driven
or event driven behaviour.

ExCost has several new functionnalities like keepstream, esis
{set|free|data}, ... that you should find intersting !
