Perhaps lets start with a proof of concept… Lets take some nice unwell-formed markup and see how you would parse it into a tree (or not)… and if there is some magical way of indicating that something is supposed to be a child or self closing:

<example>
    <child>Can I self close like a HTML <p> element?  
    <child>Or am I a child of child?  

Look ma! no end tag! :D
