   Re: [xml-dev] Postel's law, exceptions

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

One thing I noticed in several of the articles I read on this issue 
from authors on both sides of the fence was a disturbing tendency to 
confuse well-formedness with validity. I am firm in my belief that 
well-formedness is a minimum criterion we should not compromise on. 
Validity is much more negotiable.

Some times it was obvious from context what the author really meant. 
Sometimes it wasn't.
