yes, if the parser supports the SAX interface: take a look at the SAX
InputSource object. You actually need to supply a StringReader but that's
trivial. The one thing to be careful of is that it's a good idea to supply a
SystemId as well, to act as a base URL for resolving any relative URL's
within the document.
