> What makes a well-formed XML document "not XML" ?
If some spec states that certain XML attributes are ordered, then that may
be well-formed XML, but there's no guarantee that any processor in the wild
is going to respect that. Is the spec still describing XML? Well, yeah,
kinda-sorta, but it's not respecting the standard and has to be carefully
handled. You just can't toss it off anywhere.
And, yes, I am assuming either round-tripping or chained processing, so it's
not read once and throw away.
