My question is, why do I have to be in "trouble" :-)
If I have classes that generate DOM elements and Node's (which I won't mind
porting to SAX if need be) is there no way to easily append them to the XSP
pages?  This is where I'm confused about what direction to take.  Is it
prudent to start rewriting my methods that return DOM Element objects to
return SAX objects?  Any advice appreciated.
