Description:


This class along with it's subclass NodeBuilder is used by the XMLParser to distill an XML document into it's component elements. Since XML elements are tag delimited and nest
properly within each other in a well-formed XML document, this class contains code to
process the tags and build a dictionary of xml elements

Instance Variables:
	tagStack        <OrderedCollection> 
	tags    <Dictionary>


Class protocol:

constants
o  reservedXmlNamespace
Namespace constraint: Reserved Prefixes and Namespace Names

The prefix xml is by definition bound to the namespace name http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace. It may, but need not, be declared, and must not be bound to any other namespace name. No other prefix may be bound to this namespace name.

The prefix xmlns is used only to declare namespace bindings and is by definition bound to the namespace name http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/. It must not be declared. No other prefix may be bound to this namespace name.

All other prefixes beginning with the three-letter sequence x, m, l, in any case combination, are reserved. This means that

* users should not use them except as defined by later specifications
* processors must not treat them as fatal errors.
