Sure, you made *my* code as efficient, but you made applications less
efficient by requiring them to handle multiple calls for chardata.
My code was only a sample -- I left out the " and didn't normalize
space or newlines, but the technique is the same.

As I responded to Miles, the (dedicated?) application greatly benefits from
knowing that the chardata is all in a single buffer, available all at once.

Gotta think outside the SAX box.
