I suspect an error in SAXHandler, but unfortunately the stack trace
doesn't say where in SAXHandler the error is really happening.  It'll
take some investigating.  If it's important to you, add some println()'s
in SAXHandler to figure out what's happening.  I'll get to it but this
isn't at the top of my list.

This one was posted recently.  I believe it's an Oracle parser bug,
where they improperly report the declaration as a PI.  I recommend
reporting it to them.
