Ah, you're right. Sorry about the miscommunication. Elliotte changed
the class to use a Writer internally but the public API lacks a method
that accepts a Writer. So what do people think of adding output()
methods that accept Writers? I think it'd be a fine addition, but with
one twist. I propose we don't provide
and only provide
output(Document, Writer, String encodingOfWriter)
This is because the top method requires the Writer to be a Writer for
the same encoding that we have as default (UTF-8), or the encoding that
was passed in to the constructor (could be anything). That seems
awfully risky. Forcing you to specify will keep people from calling
this in a servlet:
It seems perfectly reasonable, but since we default to UTF-8 and
servlets default to Latin-1, you'll have serious problems. Opinions?
