Well, actually, I knew there was a reason I was avoiding using Expat in my
own work, and I knew there was a parser that behaved this way, but somehow
I didn't remember to put them together.  In any case, Expat provides an
_excellent_ example of a widely-used and well-respected parser that has
this behavior, which gives me plenty to write about.
