Subject Microsoft XML stuff

BTW, as I sit here in the Microsoft Developers Conference, they are talking
about a "pull" model parser.   Something to think about.  They call this an
XmlReader.

They are also talking about a data-friendly DOM -- i.e. a DOM that is
friendly and specialized for data-shaped XML, i.e. the kind of XML you
might get from a database.

They also have an XmlNavigator, which is basically a NodeIterator that is a
"lens" onto the XML tree, using XPath.  This is similar or exactly what I
am doing in the XPath module in Xalan2.

Their latest XSLT architecture looks suspiciously like TrAX.  Probably a
good thing.  Note that they are defining a SAX (like) api for their parser.
