There is a serious problem right now with the XML terminology.  There
are at least four Java-based XML parsers right now that will parse a

 - Lark
 - NXP (a little out of date)
 - Ælfred

Of these, I think that only MSXML claims to be validating.  Do you
need full validation, or do you just need a DTD-driven parser that
will pick up entity declarations, default attribute values, etc?  We
really need to invent some better terms, since validation and
DTD-awareness are really separate concepts.

All the best,
