and makes available information items (see Appendix B
but an XML editor may not even parse the document, or may parse
it in some devious or incremental way: an editor or reader of
an XML document may work off the text of the entity not the
Contrast applications which work off text with applications that
extend the infoset: such as XML in canonical form where the
attributes are given in alphabetical order: in that case, I suppose
the basic infoset is notionally augmented with positional indicators.
