Getting comment data in SAX ?

I had posted this question earlier in XML group, never got an answer.
In DOM, there is a COMMENT_NODE to get the comment data, but if I have to get the data in a comment node in SAX, what can I do?
When the parser comes across a comment node, there is no callback method defined for this in SAX.
Is there a way to get that data in SAX ?

AFAIK in SAX 1.0 there is no way to retrieve the XML comments, as SAX assumes that comments are there for the author's benefit, not for the reader's.
I don't know if this is fixed in SAX 2.0.
I agree. Here's the link:
