compiler parsing algorithms?

Michael Kay responded:

Yes, of course

Hi Michael, does that mean each time Saxon encounters a place in an XSLT 
program where an XPath expression is expected, Saxon sends the expression into 
an XPath parser which tokenizes the expression, parses it into a syntax tree, 
and then traverses the tree to evaluate the expression? Did you use a parser 
generator to auto-generate the parser? If yes, which parser generator did you 
use? If you didn't use a parser generator, why not?
