The infoset is not a format at all. It is a data model, one of many.
This data model is based on text, not binary data.
This data model is related to but not identical to real XML. There are
*many* infosets that cannot be expressed in well-formed XML (an infinite
number in fact). There are also well-formed and even namespace
well-formed XML documents that do not have infosets. Off the top of my
head, I *think* that all namespace well-formed XML documents that only
use absolute namespace URIs have well-defined infosets. However, I could
be forgetting a tricky corner case.
