No more "plugs" are needed, as far as I'm concerned. If I can manage to put
my hands on an OpenJade developer I'll shake him/her by the scruff of the
neck until your (and Liam's) patches are applied. Of course, this is likely
to be followed by a period of browbeating Gerald into building and
installing the resulting OpenSP on validator.w3.org; again followed by a
period of everyone yelling at me to finish up the changes to "check"...

I guess there's a lot of yelling coming up... :-)


On a related subject, and apropos to Bjorn, I'm fiddling with Xerces these
days and it's looking very promising. Looks like we'll eventually have
decent XML support (including Schema!).
