Re: [xml-dev] Best way to create an XML document

Hi Mike,
   Thanks for useful explanation ... I have a doubt remaining, and

If the default serializer provided by the XSLT processor doesn't check
for well-formedness of the XML output, then is it somehow possible to
feed the output to some other process which can check for
well-formedness ? Is there any standard way of doing this, or will it
be done in some other way?
