Not sure I follow. Apart from the fact that I was helping myself to a 
language feature that won't be present in Java until 1.5 (concise array 
literals) that *was* plain Java.

Without concise array literals you'd have,

  Element e =
    new Element(
      new Object[] { "Example 3", "/ss/style.css", "Hello World" } );

which isn't much uglier, and, given a suitable a base library, would 
work with any Java compiler right the way back to 1.0.
