I brought this up because of a question I had asked a short while ago in
this thread:


It was never adequately answered. And one could read the docs to imply that
if the start of the document is never encountered then neither should be
called but an error may be thrown-- of course even that is flimsy-- consider
the following document:

Error Before Prolog.xml
Venienti occurrite morbo
<?xml version="1.0"?>

Error In Prolog.xml
<?xml version="Venienti occurrite morbo"?>

What do the SAX documents actually prescribe in this case?

If I am delving too deeply into things covered your talk, then I am happy to
wait : )
