One feature I'd really like to see is a Locator.getByteOffset()
method. Obviously this feature would have to be optional, since not
all XML inputs are indexable files.
James Clark's non-SAX API for XP implements this method for startElement(),
but not for the characters() callback, which unfortunately is exactly what
I need it for. I could hack XP or another parser, but I'd much rather work
within the context of SAX.
One name for such a feature is:
(true) means getByteOffset() is supported for startElement,
endElement, and character callbacks. (false) means it is not
supported for those callbacks.
Alternatively, if there's some reason why this feature is a Bad Idea,
I'd like to know why!
