Yep, but there are a number of ways to go about that. Maybe only the 
generateFor() method needs to be altered. (other options include: 
modifying the type of the title member variable from a simple String to 
a composite object or a collection of Strings, but then the setTitle() 
method needs to be changed as well...)

If you know how to use java.util.regex (or any other regexp library) 
then it should be pretty straightforward to match character data and 
sub-elements, and emit the proper SAX events based on the results...

Yes, that was obvious, but: Sorry, no can do :-)

The explanation is that if you use the default generateFor() 
implementation, the title string will be entirely read into a character 
array --including any markup characters. Then a characters() event is 
emitted by the ContentHandler, and the parser implementation will 
gladly take care of generating entity references for any &, <, >, " and 

Short of rewriting the parser to emit element events whenever it 
receives markup characters through a characters() event, your only 
option is indeed to parse the string yourself. If it's any consolation: 
rewriting the parser would definitely be more complicated than this.
