Re: [xml-dev] a namespace definitions related question(s)

In article <B546C312A37C12438A22154026CDC7E011530785@exchfive.olympus.f5net.com> you write:
>So the processor is still expected to issue a "not well formed" message,
>but might still tolerate the result?

No.  The designers of XML wanted to avoid the problems HTML had with
tolerant browsers resulting in web pages that looked OK in the
author's browser but didn't work in others.  So they required that an
XML processor "MUST NOT continue normal processing" after a
well-formedness error.
