Among the question remaining:

I think once I have a clear answer on all three, it will just be a matter
of a bit of coding to get 2.6.0 out for good.

I'm not sure what your time-frame is, but would it possible to wait
until after the weekend before drawing the curtain here? I want to look
at the error stuff in some detail, but I am not going to have time until
tomorrow (Saturday).

  Sure, I will need a week at least I think for 2.6.0 to be ready.

I also want to do some checking of my SMIL library against the new APIs,
which may turn up some incompatibilities, since I am diving under the
covers a fair bit in some places.


As far as the DTD default attribute, I don't really have an opinion one
way or the either (assuming the if it's on by default, it is possible to
turn it off somehow). I guess I would very slightly favour reporting the
default value, but I have different programs that use each option, so it
just needs to be changable for me. :-)

  The question is purely at the new SAX2 API:
    - currently defaulted attributes are always reported
    - there is a number of defaulted attribute indication allowing
      to discard them if not needed on top of the SAX2 API
But the current behaviour could be reversed and the defaulted attributes
could be shown only if the XML_PARSE_DTDATTR option is required.

Will post some results/comments in a day or so.

  That's fine, take your time.
