If people find this interesting, we might want to rewrite it to use
the Java 2 collection classes (and the C++ STL in a C++ port, etc).  I 
am a little wary of forcing all users to have upgraded to JDK 1.2, but 
that's a separate discussion (most DTD-related work would be
server-side anyway).

All the best,
