Correct, because it doesn't use the the term. Section 2.10 says:
An XML processor must always pass all characters in a document that are
not markup through to the application. A validating XML processor must also
inform the application which of these characters constitute white space
appearing in element content.
Element content is a hyperlink to the formal definition of an element
where the DTD says you can have only other elemennts.
What's not clear here? -Tim
