Be very carefull about the code in your CharacterDataHandler
function. The strings passed to it are NOT null terminated and
may not be all of the text (may be broken into adjacent
peices). This is a great place for an error. See how DOMC
handles it in the chardata_fn when building the DOM tree here:
