RE: [xml-dev] Nested Documents (was: XML 2.0)


	Using today's parsers, I think this would be viewed as two root
elements under a single document node which causes the parser to fail.  Not
being clear on the details of a parser, it is not clear to me how it would
know (using the existing spec) that each <person> should be attached to
separate document nodes.  Perhaps your point is that the spec doesn't care
and it is an implementation issue?



What I'm saying is that if some parser decided to accept two XML documents
in a single file, for example

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<a>doc one</a>
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<a>doc one</a>

then there is nothing in the XML Recommendation that says it mustn't do so.
I'm not actually saying it would be a good idea.
