Good thinking. I've had a look at the Swing source. It
includes a parser (html32.java) generated using the java
compiler-compiler JavaCC. This calls a callback interface
HTMMLParserCallback.java, similar in concept to SAX, though
it seems to include both generic (start/end element) and
element-specific (e.g. startUL) callbacks. Of course the
main difference from a SAX application will be that the
elements are not properly nested.
