the XSLT transformer need to load in the whole source document in memory in

it is unclear to me if
it needs to load the whole source document into memory before the process
can start.

It does. The very first template for the result node tree might need to access the very last node (in parse order) in the source node tree.

Thank you for any suggestions or help that you can provide.

There are freely-downloadable previews of our two XSL books that might be able to help you.

Have fun with XSLT!
