The following XML is well-formed according to XML Spy 2.5 an XML editor. So I guess, the answer to question number 5 is yes.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>



        <test>This is a test</test>

Subject: [techspace] Questions related to XML

Here are the list of questions which came up during XML discussion. If you find an answer to any of these,
please do share it with the techspace community.
1. Can XML grammar be represented in Backus Naur format ( BNF ) .
2. Should XML keywords be always represented in a specific ASCII format or can you use different character set .
3. How to define a NULL DTD. ie a DTD which specifies no constraints. This questions came up because a DTD
is required for a document to be valid. So can we define a NULL DTD which will effectively treat all well formed XML documents
as valid documents.
4.Is there a way of declaring multiple external dtd's in the document type declaration ?
5. Can a child element have same name as the parent element ?
Jai XML !!
