On the flip side, is there an easy way
to turn a string into a document? We're using a
ByteArrayInputStream now, but that seems a bit
klunky and kludgy to me. Also, why assume that
all input sources of XML data are going to be
8-bit input streams? What if the input source
is a serialized string? That's 16-bit unicode.
The Stream verses Reader goes all the way
back to the Xerces and DOM tho....
FWIW, I have some utils to help with the
whole process - Element2String, String2Element if
anyone is interested.
