In general, .NET XML developers use XmlReader (XmlTextReader) as XML
parser. XmlReader is kind of pull parser. It is similar to XMLPull, or
StAX (streaming API for XML) etc. in Java world.

However, SAX-skilled programmers might be glad to have .NET SAX (while
some Java developers might think .net sucks ;-P )  At least I haven't
seen such product. It will be easily implemented using XmlReader.
