	My as yet unreleased HXP parser could do that.  It is a production
grammer based parser. On the lowest level it throws start and stop events
for each production in the XML spec. It does this right down to the type
of character. This means that the data event for each character is thrown
separately. I naturally planned on buffering these in my SAX driver, but
if it isn't that much trouble, I'll build in a mode to do this. :-)
