This is a really first-class approach to the subject and I welcome it.
John has taken the time to summarise 4 parsers including his/datachannel's own
and this is an excellent starting point. As an 'xmlProcessorConsumer' JUMBO
will adopt this approach as soon as I work it out.

This is really great. I'm in a rush, but at this stage
standard terminology for the XML-related terms (Element, Attribute, etc.) and
standard terminology for the Java-related stuff (Strea, Factory) etc.
is exactly what is required.
