No, I have designed it mostly to be hidden deep within applets and
applications (possibly without the user even being aware that the
applet has an XML parser).  I am glad to hear that Ælfred compresses
down to 11K in a JAR file; now if only Bill and Scott would kiss and
make up, and the entire user community would celebrate the moment by
upgrading their browsers...

On a different note, I have given Ælfred a zero-argument constructor,
and have provided some public setters and accessors, but I have not
implemented the Serializable interface (because it does not exist in
Java 1.0.2).  I am curious whether Ælfred will work in the Beanbox as
a simple invisible bean, but I haven't had time to download the
Beanbox and check.

All the best,
