humm ... had you replied:

"Well-formed XML documents must contain matching start and end tags, and
tags cannot overlap.

For example, the following example is well-formed:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <name>Cedric ROUVRAIS</name>
  <occupation>Software Architect Consultant/Engineer</occupation>
Whereas, this example is not well-formed (<name> and <occupation> tags
overlap, and there is no <person> end tag):
<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <name>Cedric ROUVRAIS
  <occupation>Software Architect Consultant/Engineer
Valid XML documents must conform to a Document Type Definition (DTD). The
following example is a valid XML document that conforms to person.dtd:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <name>Cedric ROUVRAIS</name>
  <occupation>Software Architect Consultant/Engineer</occupation>
All valid XML documents are well-formed; however, a well-formed document is
not valid unless it conforms to a DTD."

but you didn't and you helped me make my point reach it's goal.
in general i would think 'tis better to be constructive rather than
destructive. your reply

"You might want to check out the definitions for "well-formed" and "valid"
(which is the thing you called "well-formed")."

was destructive in the sense i didn't learn anything: i was stupid before
reading your mail, and i'm still stupid afterwards.
whereas Matt response was nice as i wasn't aware of this openoffice thing
(thanks matt).
my point is let's move forwards and learn from our past mistakes and not
flamme each other, or am i coming from another world ? (i'm not saying you
guys where flamming each other but your discussion was leading us to
