IBM's XML Parser package has some DOM support.

Data Channel started with SAXDOM but they couldn't wait for SAX2 to get DTD
support.  They probably rewrote all if not most of the code to fuse directly
with their own parser and to support XML part of the DOM spec.

As I have told DataChannel, you are free to take SAXDOM code, change it and
rename it anyway you like, include it in your product, give it out as
Christmas presents, whatever.  You do not have to mention my name nor
SAXDOM.  Perhaps I should have named it FREEDOM!;-p.

BTW, it looks like the next release of SAXDOM will be slightly delayed until
SAX is finalized.

Sorry if this affects your plans,
