This procedure will produce a broken XML,
because SAX turns > & < " and '

e t,.c This usually takes place in endElement

I think it does the encoding described above, for example.
I'd say that "how can you read XML document and write it
back unchanged" is a nice question for "XML certification"
Tee-hee. The correct answer is
"It is impossible, but in the case you are asking about keeping the
there are several problems, such as ... "
