Hi David,

Good work!

This is a major patch in Xalan, one last in Xalan 2.7.1. Previously, it 
caused many failures in JCK and SQE regression tests. I see that you've 
resolved those failures with the fix stated below, and getting all tests 
to pass.

Some minor cleanup may be desirable, such as:
  - the unused AbstractTranslet: import java.util.Vector
  - comments in EmptySerializer and ToSAXHandler: 
  - comment in the new method initCdataElems in SerializerBase that "we 
just ended a URI, add the URI to the vector" although it didn't.
  - comments in ToStream about setCdataSectionElements(Vector v)
