I use XQuery.  The language lets you do amazing things with XML and if 
you can get the right implementation it can be extremely fast.  In my 
day job I'm able to quickly extract data from gigs of XML to produce 
reports.  This of course relies on an indexed engine (not just reading 
off the filesystem).

Here's a site I setup talking about XQuery.
