The XML.COM article was "Summary of XML Parser Performance Testing" of 5 May
1999, at "".  Six parsers were
tested: two in C (expat and RXP); two in Java (Java XP and IBM's Java
XML4J); plus Perl and Python wrappers for expat.

Another (overlapping) article was "Benchmarking XML Parsers on Solaris" of 9
June 1999, at "".
This also looked at six parsers, dropping RXP, and testing another Java
parser (xml-tr2 from Javasoft).
