I have updated the site which discusses XML Java API Standardization in
order to reflect the feedback of the last few days.

The site is located at:

The most significant change has been the inclusion of event stream
stuff. Event streams being lower level then parse trees they can't be
ignored. DSSSL grove work is being studied for its relavant influence in
terminology and future work. I'd like to leave the actual grove work for
a later version. So the work has been repositioned as the lowest level
(event streams) plus some of the next level (parse tree but not full

Also it seems the best thing to do would be to target JDK 1.1 because is
has java.io.Reader which makes Unicode and internationalization much
easier. JDK 1.0.2 will also supported but "depreciated." Every
implementation has been building some sort of UnicodeInputStream and it
seems that Reader is the way to go. I want JAX now but I don't want to
blow the i18n stuff.

I have become tired of typing "XML Java API Standardization" so I
propose we rename it to "Java API for XML" or JAX for short. If anyone
has a better idea I'd like to hear it.
