I am using the following code:
to build xml content. I am unable to find a way to print the DOM document I
built to output stream. I appreciate your help

Thank you in advance

import javax.xml.parsers.*;
import org.w3c.dom.Document;
import org.w3c.dom.Element;
import org.w3c.dom.Text;
import org.w3c.dom.ProcessingInstruction;
import java.io.*;

public class MakeDocumentWithFactory {
          public static void main(String[] argv) {
              try {
                    DocumentBuilderFactory dbf =
                    DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
                    Document doc = db.newDocument();
                    Element root = doc.createElement("person");
                    Element item = doc.createElement("name");
                   //HOW TO PRINT??? System.out.print(doc);

Yes, but it you specify width:100% (or any other
relative value), getComputedStyle returns the actual
pixel width, which is dependent on the user agent and
its settings.  Doesn't this depend on how the document
is rendered?

I was referring to how setting border-style:dotted is
rendered at solid in IE 5.0...
