John Cowan has released TagSoup 1.1.3, an open source, Java-language, SAX parser for nasty, ugly HTML. This release fixes bugs that arose when working with Saxon. "The 1.1.3 release fixes a problem that made TagSoup unable to interoperate with the XSLT processors Saxon-B and Saxon-SA. Any attempt to set the ContentHandler, DTDHandler, ErrorHandler, LexicalHandler, or EntityResolver of a TagSoup Parser object to null caused the parser to break rather than resetting its behavior to the default. As a result, Saxon would crash with a NullPointerException when processing the second document."
