The current JUMBO2 has an option to load any SAX-based parser from a menu
button, so you can experiment in a fairly interactive manner. At this stage
of the game I'd suggest that application writers try more than one parser
to make sure that consistent results are being  generated from SAX. And if
different parsers give different results it might be worth reporting those
here in case the authors were unaware. In any case a systematic comparison
of any such differences between parsers would be a public service :-)
