RE: [xml-dev] SAX - not well formed data

It's not clear from that description why it isn't well-formed.

You should be able to abort the parse when you have read what you want, by
throwing an exception from any of the callback methods (e.g endElement()).
The parser will then exit back to your application with an exception, which
you can catch. You should check that this exception is the one you were
expecting, not some other unrelated error in your input.

That option controls DTD validation, which will not affect well-formedness
