[jdom-interest] Bug in SAXBuilder for mixed content

Okay, so I can partly fix it.

SAXHandler.endElement() in SAXBuilder.java:
  public void endElement(String namespaceURI, String localName,
                         String rawName) {
    if (needsRTrim) {
      Element e = (Element) stack.peek();


I suppose blindly commenting out other people's code is not the right way to
do a bug fix, but it works for my test cases.  Hopefully, though, it will

My guess is that SAXBuilder should not be trimming content, but Element
should do it.

Of the four documents (below), I think the first two have correct output,
but 3 and 4 do not.  I would gues the problem is in SAXBuilder, which counts
me out for offering a quick fix, as I know nothing about SAX.  Calling
getChild("c") on the elements throws a NoSuchElementException for documents
3 and 4.  (I'm using the June5 source.)
