Mary Brady had a good note about what OASIS (and NIST) are doing,
and other posts have mentioned some of the additional work I did
and reported in this article:

Accessible through that article is the SAX test harness which
supports it.  It's open source.  Any updates will be at:

Please, anyone thinking of a SAX conformance test suite:  look at
that first, and think carefully about whether another one is needed.
I'll gladly accept feedback.  I certainly worked to avoid bugs, and
none have yet been reported to me.
