I couldn't agree more, I just poured over the XML spec for two hours,
taking notes and trying like hell to understand this stuff.  I
poked around trying to find a "Gentle Intro to XML" or "A Complete
Idiot's Guide to DTD Writing", but so far, no success.  Any
recommendations from the list would be great.

So, is it acceptable to post here asking for clarifications on
these matters?  I've read the spec, read the FAQ, I'm still somewhat
lost on these things (but learning!).

BTW, development of SAX would be great... I'm writing XML application
code right now, and I'd like to be able to plug in any parser I
want -- SAX would help a lot in letting me write to an API, and
not caring what's 'under the hood'.  Let us lowly peons know how
we can help!
