I recently went through something similar, but with a feature unique to 
crimson. You can use JDOM with any sax2 parser, or a parser that 
generates a DOM tree. Someone else may be able to give more info, but I 
think your options are pretty open. Switching to JDOM (in my mind) frees 
you to use whatever parser is handy. We were able to switch to the 
default parser in JDK1.4 (which is crimson, but the xalan it contained 
wasn't compatible with the ElementFactory in crimson)
I'm using JDOM from a post beta8 CVS snapshot. I heard that beta 8 had a 
memory usage issue that I didn't want to deal with.
beta 9 anyone???
