I second that. Writting your own does not strike me as a good idea, as there 
are many out there. Why waste effort re-inventing the wheel.

Just to add another, I work on a project that uses Xerces. I don't work much 
myself on the part that interacts with this directly, so I cannot say if I 
recommend it or not, but it seems to work just fine in our case, which is 
parsing *lots* of XML for data.
