First, I just want to thank Jason and Brett for
creating JDOM and I am glad to be able to use it.

I am also a new comer to XML and I am currently
involved in a project in which I would like to use
JDOM for XML manipulation in a applet.

I noticed that JDOM makes use of the xerces.jar file. 
However, the xerces.jar file is about 1.4 M. I don't
think its a good idea for users of the applet to
download the entire xerces.jar file (in addition to
other jar files) over a 28.8 modem (one requirement of
the project).  As far as my needs go, I am only going
to use the SAXBuilder to traverse xml files.  

I was wondering if it is a good idea to repackage the
xerces.jar file, ie extract only those classes needed
by JDOM?  If so, what is the minimum set of classes I

Or are there any other alternatives?
