Hi - Lark 0.91 is now available at 

Only one real difference - it now does Unicode.  It reads the BOM and thus
UCS-2/UTF-16 (even byte-swaps); if there's no BOM, reads and tries to 
use the encoding declaration, boots it if it says anything but "UTF-8" or 
"UTF8".  Successfully parses Murata-san's translation of the XML
spec, would love to get my hands on some more internationalized
XML; in particular with non-ASCII markup.

Another 6K of .class files for I18n, sigh.

Lots of bug-fixes in the event-stream module.  I had to write a 
significant event-stream Lark application to pull the character classes
out of the XML spec in order to build the CharClasses.java file, and
ran across a few bodacious bugs in end-tag handling.

It's a bit bogus because it really doesn't do UTF-8 yet, just ASCII
masquerading as such.  UTF-8 Real Soon Now.

Cheers, Tim Bray
