Gnome libxml and Oracle XML Parser for C do have SAX
interface in C.


Another interesting work is the Simple API for CSS (SAC).
The SAC interface is defined both in Java and C.


I think the combination of SAX and SAC might be very
attractive (especially in C binding) while developing
XML software on resource constrained environment,
such as XHTML Basic user agents.
