  Actually it's released under both licences.

  There is some kind of SAX interface, but it's not very well tested nor
debugged. Moreover it's probably not complete. Send me the interfaces
you're using I will see what I can do.

  Gnome-dom is just a DOM compliant set of interfaces on top of gnome-xml.
The tree produced by the parser is really close to a DOM view.

   Oh, yes Miguel wrote an article. Funny :-)

  I suggest you subscribe to (majordomo) so we can move
this out of Apache list, most listeners probably don't care much about
those issues.
