# [09:33] <MikeSmith> hsivonen: btw, you got my question from the other day about hooking HTML5 parser into other java apps?  
# [09:33] <MikeSmith>  
# [09:34] <hsivonen> MikeSmith: I've missed that bit in the logs  
# [09:35] <hsivonen> MikeSmith: you need a DocumentBuilderFactory that instantiates HtmlDocumentBuilder  
# [09:35] <MikeSmith> OK  
# [09:35] <hsivonen> MikeSmith: I haven't supplied one, because I wasn't aware of people actually needing one  
# [09:36] <MikeSmith> hsivonen: I was thinking it would be useful for anybody who wants to just use the HTML5 parser in place of whatever existing XML one  
# [09:36] <MikeSmith> e.g., with Saxon  
# [09:36] <hsivonen> I thought they'd just do new HtmlDocumentBuilder  
# [09:36] <MikeSmith> or jing or whatever  
# [09:36] <hsivonen> I didn't realize people actually want the factory stuff  
# [09:36] <MikeSmith> I mean using it from the command-line  
# [09:36] <hsivonen> but yeah, that would be doable
