>Root element name must match the DOCTYPE name

A validating XML parser enforces the constraint that the root
element of the document matches the element type name specified
in the doctype. So this snippet is ok:

        <!DOCTYPE foo "bar.dtd">

(foo matches foo)

but this is not:

        <!DOCTYPE foo "bar.dtd">

(foo does not match baz)

Non-validating parsers, on the other hand, don't care.
