Kim asks about caching DTDs for faster parsing:

LT NSL ( does exactly that, but
doesn't validate except the first step in the pipe.  If you don't care
about validation, but do want speed, I recommend LT XML (new release
just out: which is written in
C, runs on WIN32 and UN*X platforms, comes with a number of pre-built
tools (including two for downtranslation) which might well handle a
lot of your needs -- if not it also includes a powerful API supporting
both stream and event views of your documents.

Of course the truely correct approach is to use XSL+XSLJ+Jade or
DSSSL+Jade, avoiding the procedural (slow) Perl step altogether.
