But you failed to read the definition of "text-processing component", viz.
"A text-processing component is a component that recognizes data as text."
"Processing" is here used in the narrow XML 1.0 sense of "parsing", and is
not extended to output routines.

no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language that
they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful. --The Hobbit
