I will provide timings when I have time, also with expat.

:)) it is *my* dll which is in the cvs now.

But you are right, the (py)expat dlls are all there. I just
cannot import pyexpat. The dlls are not found. sgmlop works
off-the-shelf. Is it necessary to adjust path variables for 
pyexpat? If so, then I'll change the layout for Windows a little
to make this unnecessary. Until now, I could simply plug the
whole package into my Python dir and use it.

And thanks about the info concerning whitespace.

p.s.: now busy building an ultra-light DOM which needs less memory
than its XML string representation. It's becoming fun :-)
