Re: [xml-dev] Fixing what's broke

What about the idea of using the notation </qname/>expression to indicate a singleton element that automatically terminates when any other tag is encountered:

     </book:author/>John Grisham
     </book:title/>The Firm

White space would be ignored automatically.  This would be very useful for inputting data-centric content into an XML document, and also is visually suggestive of regex terminology.
