A revised NamespaceFilter SAX parser, conforming (more or less)
to the new namespace draft, is now available at: .

This is source code only.  It now looks *exactly* like a regular
SAX parser, and can be specified to any SAX application using

The real SAX parser must be specified as the value of the Java property
Yes, I know it's ugly.

This version uses the dagger (U+2020) in UniversalNames to separate
the URI from the localPart.  When the event structure for
namespace-aware SAX parsers settles, I will modify it to use that.
Note that the JDK1.1.5 console driver prints the dagger as "?", but it
isn't really a "?".

Feedback is earnestly solicited.
