You can't create attributes with SAX. SAX is read-only. You can do it 
with DOM, and that's certainly way too verbose. JDOM, however, is 
much simpler:

Element element = new Element("para");
para.setAttribute("id", "p1");
para.setAttribute("align", "left");

XOM will be no more and sometimes less verbose than JDOM. How does 
o:XML compare to this? Could you show us the equivalent o:XML code 
for the above JDOM code?
