I've tested this great parser with a 2k xml files.
The first file without an encoding header was parsed in a
loop 40000 times in 10 seconds.
Then, I took another file which has encoding="ISO-8859-
8" attribute and the performance decreases by 50 % !!
So it takes 15 seconds.
If I change the second file and by deleting the encoding
attribute the parsing takes 10 secs.
We intend to use the parser on a very heavy loaded
system and since it is the fastest parser we found.
