Uhm, not quite.

First of all J├╝rgen is talking about Saxon, not SAX.  Saxon is an
alternative XSLT processor, see <>

SAX and DOM are two different approaches to parsing a document, a pull
based model is yet another approach (used by the .NET XML parser classes
or StAX <> for example).

While I don't know which approach Xalan-J uses when parsing the source
document or the stylesheet, I'd be suprised if it was pure DOM.
