                             Version 1.4.2
                             Release Notes
  
  INTRODUCTION:
  ============
  
  This document contains the release notes for this version of the Jakarta
  ECS package, and highlights changes since the previous version. This is a 
  maintenance release aimed at existing users who required a released version
  containing all the fixes made since the last release.
  
  NEW FEATURES:
  ============
  General
  -------
  * Changed scope of createStartTag and createEndTag so they can be called 
    externally from other packages.
  * New examples of ecs-in-use to src/java/org/apache/ecs/examples.
  * Also documentation enhancements.
  
  ConcreteElement
  ---------------
  * Added overloaded method to ConcreteElement.output
  * added isEmpty() method and lineSeparator stuff
  
  Doctype
  -------
  * Added Doctype support for DTD HTML 4.01
  
  ECSDefaults
  -----------
  * The property file can now be overridden by setting the
    ecs.properties property.
  
  XhtmlFrameSetDocument
  ---------------------
  * Adding missing get/setDoctype()
  
  Input
  -----
  * Added more constuctors
  
  Option
  ------
  * Added methods to make things a little easier with options and selects.
  * Make option default to having a closing tag
  
  Select
  ------
  * Added methods to make things a little easier with options and selects.
  * Added appendOption methods
  
  org.apache.ecs.wml.P
  --------------------

  DEPRECATED
  ==========
  
  CHANGES:
  ========
  
  ElementAttributes
  -----------------
  * Change the way keyword/value pair is delimited with quotes.
  
  BUG REPORTS ADDRESSED:
  =====================
  
  ConcreteElement
  ---------------
  * Changed output so that the current element encoding type is used when the element 
    is outputted to an OutputStream.
  * Fixed potential problem with PrintWriter not flushing. 
  * Fixed end of line handling while pretty printing, so that
  it is correctly uses the line.separator system property to determine end of
  line, instead of using a hard coded '\n'.
  
  Document
  --------
  * There are some errors in the code of this class. They are the same kind of errors that
I found in
  org.apache.ecs.Document. The problem is mainly in the setXXX methods (setBody for example),
which forgets to
  update the local reference AND the reference in the Hashtable.
  * Fixed NPE on null doctype
  
  ElementAttributes
  -----------------
  * Fixed bug when addAttribute is used with an int, Integer or Object as an attribute value.
  
  FrameSetDocument
  ----------------
  * Fixed some errors in the code of this class. The problem was mainly in the setXXX methods
    (setBody for example), which forgets to update the local reference AND the reference 
    in the Hashtable. 
  
  GenericElement
  --------------
  * International character set bug fix
  
  DOMFactory
  ----------
  * Change DOMFactory so that it doesn't use Piped*Streams to prevent potential deadlocks.
  
  Script
  ------
  * Changed script so that the body is not outputted when the src attribute is set.
