Note that the 12-July draft has a couple issues with the
relative URIs accessed through "xmlconf.xml"; briefly,
most of the files named in entities there need to be
one level up in the tree before those relative URIs on
the TEST elements (for each test case) can be used by
a test driver.

And for anyone wanting to try to use these test cases,
I've released an alpha (!!) of a test driver that uses
SAX (1.0 or 2.0 alpha) to put Java parsers through their
paces and generate a report.  No output tests yet, but
it'll be useful for anyone wanting to evaluate parsers:


Top conformance is from Sun's parsers and from XP; I'm
suspecting most of the XP failures are test driver bugs.
