Sorry if i jump in late but somehow most mail from the states came 
in late recently. I'd suggest you have a look at Daniel Veillard's
excellent libxml/libxslt (www.xmlsoft.org) -- a pretty much feature-
complete library to parse/process/dump xml data as well as a library
implementing the XSLT standard (and it's one of the strictest libs
in following the w3c standards). It comes with two handy standalone
apps -- xmllint (a parser/validator) and xsltproc (a commandline
XSLT processor). 
There are bindings for Perl, Python and some other langages (Kylix,
TCL, Guile ...). 
I'm using it in a custom XML/XSLT apache module for realtime trans-
formation of XML content (if you're interessted i'll post the URL 
once we switched to the new system officially so you can see the
processing speed ;-)
