Subject: RE: [election-services] Proposed Changes to v4

The person who reported the original problem using Xerces is happy with the
changes I made, so I believe that there are no more changes required. Could
anyone let me know if they have problems with this or any other parser. I
would also be interested in knowing which parsers (including version number)
people are using successfully with EML, especially following the next
