[XOM-interest] Obscure encodings

It appears that IBM's Java 1.4.1 virtual machine for Linux does 
support all these encodings. Therefore I can test them, and users can 
use them if they need to. Thus support for all of these encodings are 
going to ship with XOM 1.0. :-)

On the other hand, IBM's Java 1.4.1 ships with an outdated version of 
Xerces which throws NoSuchMethodErrors when used with XOM. I'm 
working around that now, but the workarounds will probably make IBM's 
JVM noticeably slower than Sun's VM when used with XOM. :-(

There are also some issues with IBM's Xalan version I need to explore further.
