Subject:  MDSAX, an open framework for processing
          multiple document types

MDSAX is a set of tools for organizing, managing, and directing sophisticated SAX (the Simple API for XML) processing of XML documents. Using MDSAX, developers can create clean entryways for documents, making it easier to create applications that work with multiple document types and can support some of the more sophisticated features of XML processing, like namespaces, XLink linking, XSL transformations, and architectural forms.

MDSAX is distributed under the BSD license, and contributions are invited (and will be credited.) MDSAX is still very much under development and would benefit from your participation.
