All papers from the conference will be published on the Web including 
mine, and the test suite will eventually be public. Right now the 
code is very messy, still exploratory, and all results are very 
preliminary. I doubt anyone could really build or run this yet 
without me sitting behind them, so I'm not going to publish it just 
yet. However, although I'm not yet confident in the conformance 
numbers I'm generating, I have definitely identified quite a few 
previously undiscovered bugs in pretty much all the established SAX 
parsers, and some useful information about where and how these 
parsers deviate from the SAX spec. The Xerces team just fixed a 
particularly nasty bug my tests had exposed:
