What constitutes an XML document?
I've joined this list primarily because I need an answer to a very specific
If I am asked to produce an XML document and I come up with something that
LOOKS like XML markup - syntactically correct tags, attributes, etc.
I do not supply a DTD or a schema, and I refuse to supply a DTD or a schema
(because I have actually created the document without designing/creating a
DTD or a schema)
I understand that the document cannot be validated - but what I need to know
is: Is what I have produced actually XML at all, or is it just a document
formatted to look like XML?
This is not theoretical - it relates to a genuine situation, though I have
changed the identity of the author of the document for obvious reasons.
