I have put up a new beta release of Microstar's Java-based XML parser,
Ælfred (AElfred), with two minor bugs fixed:

1) When Ælfred finds "<?xml" at the beginning of an entity, it looks
   for whitespace before assuming that it has found an XML declaration
   or text declaration.

2) Ælfred now allows optional version info in the text declaration
   (formerly the encoding PI), as permitted by the 1997-12-08 spec.

You can download the new version from


Please note that Ælfred is strictly case sensitive, as required by the
spec (with SGML keywords in uppercase, and XML-specific ones in
lowercase).  In other words, you may use

  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <!DOCTYPE doc SYSTEM "doc.dtd">

but not

  <?XML VERSION="1.0"?>
  <!doctype doc system "doc.dtd">

All the best,
