hmm well...


line 21 of which is

<!ENTITY lt     "<">

Technically you are right of course that this document doesn't define
&lt; (and is well formed) despite that line not meeting the
requirements as specified in the same document, as that isn't a
definition of lt as it is ignored as lt is pre-defined (by definition
in XML or in the sgml declaration for sgml) but it always seemed a
good test case (and James Clark confirmed his understanding was that
it was well formed when I queried it at the time) sadly later edits of
the xml spec have rubbed off such nice self referential tests:-)
