I have put a very protypical DOM package at the URL
There are some DOM objects (not everyone, for reasons stated in the README
file), a builder, a transformer and a lineariser.
This is the result of several hours of hacking over a period of more than
3 months, and I won't have the time to improve the result significantly
in the near future, that's why I'm releasing it as it is now.
Of course, I'm eagerly waiting for comments. (I can justify some of the
decisions, for example: why did I use Dan Connoly's parser? Well it was
the only one available 9 months ago when I stated hacking XML, and it
can also parse a reasonnable subset of HTML, which is good for my legacy
