An argument for using 
        typdef const SAXChar* SAXString;
is that you get late construction of the basic_string<>, ie. you don't 
create it until you have to (eg. when using it to do a lookup in an
STL map<>).

But ven if it's not used directly on the SAX interface, such a typedef
would be useful when handling the data (eg. for creating the above
mentioned map<>).
