How fast is "fairly quickly"? How big are the documents? How complex
is the transform? I would not rule out the XSL/java ones at first
sight. Looking at a simple transform on a 3Mbyte XML file, I get

real	0m20.540s
user	0m19.760s
sys	0m0.360s

on my average Linux box using XT. Is that slow or fast? 

Omnimark would seem to be the other obvious contender.
