The XML spec requires that validating parsers have a mode in which
they don't report validity errors. See the definitions of "validity
constraint" and "at user option".
>Non-validating parsers of course won't read the external subset.
Non-validating parsers *need not* read the external subset, but they
can if they want to. Validating parsers of course must do so.
