 45 * This is the main interface that most SAX applications implement: if
 46 * the application needs to be informed of basic parsing events, it
 47 * implements this interface and registers an instance with the SAX
 48 * parser.  The parser uses the instance to report basic
 49 * document-related events like the start and end of elements and
 50 * character data.
 51 *
 52 * The order of events in this interface is very important, and
 53 * mirrors the order of information in the document itself.  For
 54 * example, all of an element's content (character data, processing
 55 * instructions, and/or subelements) will appear, in order, between
 56 * the startElement event and the corresponding endElement event.
