> The NekoHTML library we currently use for parsing HTML has a transitive dependency on
Apache Xerces. The Xerces library is pretty big (1.2MB) and is known to cause various problems
when included in the classpath of an application or a container that expects some other XML
parser library.
> The TagSoup library (http://home.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/tagsoup/) provides an alternative
HTML parsing library that works pretty much like NekoHTML but doesn't depend on Xerces. I
suggest we switch from NekoHTML to TagSoup unless this change causes major regressions in
HTML parsing.
