Thanks for responding.  Xerces-J's behavior is consistent with the 
behavior I've seen in Gecko and Safari that prompted me to ask the 
question in the first place.  Both Gecko/20080110's and Safari 3.?'s XML 
parsers report the above example as a parse error as well, with very 
similar messages.

I'm trying to determine if triggering a parse error is the _only_ 
correct behavior, if it is open to interpretation, or if it is 
incorrect.  If you know of a way to determine which of these three 
possibilities is the case, I'd love to know.
