   SAX2 fatal error in Xerces-J-1.1.1

Hi all,
	I am using Xerces 1.1.1 SAXParser.  When I parse the following faulty
xml document which does not have attribute value, the fatal error
doesn't give me enough clue on which attribute is missing '=' character.

	The xml document is 

	<?xml version="1.0"?>
		<Customer cid="10" cname/>

The fatal error is 
	Attribute name "Customer" must be followed by the '=' character.  
"Customer" is the element name not attribute name and it doesn't give
information about whether 'cid' or 'cname' attribute is invalid.

I have also set the SAX feature to continue on fatal error 
 but I don't get the startElement() event for "Customer".

	I am trying to convert the existing HTML pages to XHTML format so that
I can construct DOM tree of it.  I am missing so many important HTML
tags (like <table border> .. </table> etc..) in the target DOM tree.
	Is the behaviour correct according to SAX2.0/XML specification??  If it
is correct, how to convert the html to xhtml using simple SAX events +
errors generated by SAX ???  I don't want to use other HTML parsers to
do this.
Is the behaviour same in XP also?? If XP can give more info I don't mind
using that.  Any XP users please reply back.

Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated..
