At the Javascript level there are parse() and serialize() methods on the Saxon object

and you can invoke these using ixsl:call

Generally our focus has been to allow good interworking with the Javascript environment rather than providing language extensions. There are a few things that are obviously needed, like evaluate and try/catch; one thing we need to do is work out how to provide these as "overlays", by which I mean fetching the code from the server only if it's actually used. We need to make the main code download smaller before we make it larger.
