[jdom-interest] Getting comments in a Document

This may be the wrong forum, but I hope someone knows this answer. I'm using
Java 1.4 with the default parser and JDOM. I process an XML document that
has comments in it. After getting a good Document object, my code has:


            Filter comments = new ContentFilter( ContentFilter.COMMENT );

            List commentList = newPrelDoc.getContent( comments );

            System.out.println( "commentList size is: " +


And, I'm getting a value of zero as the size. (A) Is this the right way to
use this filter? (B) Is it known that the default parser blocks comments?
(C) Is there a magic incantation to get it to pass comments along? (D) Does
a different parser pass comments through?
