Yes. xt is amazingly fast and SAXON is catching up (!) but it remains true
that processing can take a long time.

Ingredients of the solution include:
- doing work once at publication time rather than repeatedly at display time
- initialising the stylesheet once to render many source documents
(compilation is one approach but not the only one)
- doing work on the client system where there's lots of spare processing
- software optimisation (don't expect more than a factor of 2 or 3
improvement on current results, except in special cases)
- faster hardware!
