[jdom-interest] Getting String from a Document

I'm not sure what I'm missing here but I see these two methods in 

public Document build(java.io.Reader characterStream)
                throws JDOMException

       This builds a document from the supplied Reader.

             in - Reader to read from.
             Document - resultant Document object.
             JDOMException - when errors occur in parsing.

public Document build(java.io.Reader characterStream,
                       java.lang.String SystemId)
                throws JDOMException

I see that the JavaDoc is a little off from the actual arguments. 
characterStream should be changed to in as the JavaDoc suggests (I 
really don't like calling Readers character streams, gives people the 
wrong ideas about what's a subclass of what) but either of these two 
methods should do what you need.
