+=== How do I enable debugging output for Digester? ===
+Digester uses the commons-logging package. Commons-logging can be configured in 
+many different ways, but the simplest mechanism is to run Java with the following options:
+  java -Dorg.apache.commons.logging.Log=org.apache.commons.logging.impl.SimpleLog \
+       -Dorg.apache.commons.logging.simplelog.defaultlog=debug \
+An alternative is to ensure that log4j.jar is in the classpath, then create a log4j.xml or file
+with the appropriate logging categories enabled, and place that configuration file in a directory
which is in
+the classpath. See for more information on log4j.
+For more options, see the commons-logging project documentation.
