No, what I have is code that converts a DOM *tree* into a
SAX *event stream*. The result is "manageable" to applications
that expect SAX events.
For example, you can use the non-API methods of Docuverse DOM SDK
(or any other Java DOM implementation that supports SAX)
in cooperation with a real SAX parser to capture an XML document
as a DOM tree. You can then use DOMParser to generate those same
SAX parse events repeatedly by walking the tree repeatedly.
