Hi all,

This is part of Xerces update: move to a common serialization codebase 
with Xalan. As noted in one of the mailing list discussions:

Xalan's serializer has the same baseline capability as Xerces' Java serializer, effort was devoted to improve its performance
and fix bugs and it is being maintained by Xalan-J community and so we should use Xalan's serializer as the primary code base moving forward.

The main code changes are a new set of classes in "dom3" added to the 
serializer package.

After fixing a few compatibility issues related to the pretty-print 
feature, the patch now passes all of the JAXP tests.



Please review.
