 From the XML 1.0 spec: "XML processor may, but need not, make it possible 
for an application to retrieve the text of comments."

	Are comments in XML documents supposed to be ignored by parsers?  Which 
ones have methods (or events) to get the comment blocks?  We are thinking 
of adding some of our own metadata tags within the comments so it doesn't 
break the application server.  I also would like to parse the file with my 
own program and get the metadata.
