With SAX now stable, I feel ready to expose SAXON to the world.

SAXON is a Java package that provides a layer of services on top of SAX. These services include:

I have used SAXON to do a variety of XML->XML and XML->HTML transformations. It includes a number of standard element handlers that are convenient for doing common HTML renditions as well as more advanced functions such as auto-numbering and sorting.

More details, and downloadable software, on

Why "SAXON"? Well, because it's a layer on top of SAX. (And originally it was closely linked to AElfred)...

Have fun.
