Fixed, as noted in a few followups.  See right now!

Re the C parser, that was explicitly a non-goal:  it tested things
using standardized _Java_ bindings (SAX).  As stated repeatedly in
that article.  

Re the Java version, the version in that article is still the latest
commercially licensed version (2.0.15).  The review is not "out of
date" even though IBM subsequently released a noncommercial "EA2".

With the care IBM invested in ensuring that the "EA2" version not
be licensed for products, it'd be inappropriate to review EA2 unless
the 2.0.15 release gets withdrawn in its favor.
