The SAXParserFactory.setFeature() method is part of JAXP 1.1, which
hasn't been fully implemented yet.  (All the JAXP 1.0 features should
work, however.)  The workaround you use is fine.  It uses JAXP to get
the system default parser (unlike SAX which forces the app to specify)
and uses SAX2 to set features, which makes the app portable.
