Yes. Thanks for clearing that up for me. I had accepted this to be the case
after the aforementioned posts from Rob Lugt, and had adjusted my processor
But of recent times I have been working with the Expat C parser, and it
appears to me to be impossible to support the above interpretation using Expat
"out-of-the-box". For this reason I wanted to confirm that the above was
indeed the correct interpretation before fumbling around trying to modify
Expat to conform (I'm afraid I'm a wee bit "C-challenged" <g>).
