I've gotten a subversion repository up and running.

The cb2xml classes used by this package are not installed. I have not changed these filed. I have however, had to recompile them so that I can create this package to be compatible with Java 1.4.

If you need to compile to Java 1.4, get the source for the cb2xml files from the src jar or from the cb2xml project. I see no need to modify these sources and branch them from cb2xml.

Finished changing names in Element class to follow 'get' standard. Changes are in the release notes.
