We have been burnt with relying on MSXML.DLL, so we have chosen Dundas
Software's new C++ XML parser, which includes source code.  However, I was
disappointed to see that it doesn't support XML DOM.

What add-on utility exists to get the DOM on top of a C++ XML Parser class?

Hi Sean, everyone,

David Brownell already wrote up a nice article about this at:
which I can't get to at the moment.

IBM XML4C (? I think)

BTW, I think a more useful table would include what other features the
parsers have, rather than just a strict compliance/validating judgement.

Example features to consider would be: parser size (why I use aelfred),
parser speed (why XP is a good choice), language supported (Java/C/C++),
DOM1 support, DOM2 support, SAX support, SAX2 support, namespace support,
external entities support, memory usage, maximum file size supported,
and last but not least character set encodings supported.
