FWIW, this is quoted from a page currently on the Microsoft site:
> Tags may be ended in one of three ways. As in HTML, <TAG> is ended by
> </TAG>. Since XML is strict about proper nesting, you can also end the
> innermost tag with </>, which is much simpler....
I suppose this may result from nothing more nefarious than confusion
within Microsoft with regard to what makes legal XML. But might not such
confusion be consequential if and as it spills into the marketplace?
Or is this copy merely out of date? (The file name suggests it was keyed
in October.) Is it still a live question whether Microsoft applications
and/or guidelines will be fostering the deployment of "XML" repositories
using tag minimization? I browsed this page today, Dec. 29 1997.
