Yes, we (qua DTD designers) know this. To guard against *inadvertent*
error - which was my point - the user would have to be given a different
explanation or rule of thumb ("Always provide title text, don't leave that
part blank!") If they internalize this, very good.
I've found "Always start text with a tag that describes it" much easier to
teach. Diff'rent strokes fer diff'rent folks...

Sorry, I don't understand this. Who said anything about *wanting* to
create invalid data?
