    \var{content} may be a Unicode string or a byte string; the
    \code{expat} reader module produces always Unicode strings.
+   \strong{Note:}  The earlier SAX 1 interface provided by the Python
+   XML Special Interest Group used a more Java-like interface for this
+   method.  Since most parsers used from Python did not take advatage
+   of the older interface, the simpler signature was chosen to replace
+   it.  To convert old code to the new interface, use \var{content}
+   instead of slicing content with the old \var{offset} and
+   \var{lenght} parameters.
