Following the discussion of the API and the elements-as-classes I have posted
my API for JUMBO as javadoc classes.  Since there are over 3000 member functions
please excuse some awful documentation - some of it was done at an early stage!
(Also I haven't been able to copy the javadoc icons).

It's at:


and the most relevant file there is


(It's only called SGML because I started it before XML:-)

The key class is SGMLNode, possibly followed by SGMLTree and DTD and 
SGMLAttlist.  If you read the API I hope you will get some feel for the sorts of
member functions that I have found necessary.  Note that JUMBO is tree-oriented,.
[The graphical functions are in DrawableSGMLNode and SGMLTOC, so avoid those
if you are interested in abstract functions only.]

I'd value comments, and I'll try to help with the admittedly bad documentation.
In my defence, I had no idea where all this was going when I started - JUMBO
was not intended to be graphical, an editor, or to support hyperlinks :-)
