    MS XML DOM or any other DOM is, as you would already be knowing, a memomry
    representation of the XML file which is accessible thru code. The entire
    XML file is parsed, validated and the DOM tree is created. SAX which stands
    for Simple API for XML is one level below this. It is a set of routines which
    read the XML file parse each tag and raise event such as startElement(),
    endElement() etc. These events are used by DOM parsers to create the DOM
    tree. In cases where the XML files are very large, loading them in the memory
    in form of a tree is not such a good idea. Other example could be a case
    where a custom Object Model is required. In these cases it is more useful
    to use SAX parsers and catch events raised by them. The SAX is faster than
    DOM but the programming is trickier ;-)

    Hope it helps,
