Re: RS/RE, again (sorry)

| If we have defined the concept of well-formed XML precisely so that we

| definition of well-formedness to include what we might call
| "normalized whitespacing." An XML document is well-formed (and
| therefore can be properly processed without reference to a DTD) *only*

| if it were parsed with reference to its DTD.

I rather like this idea, but what do you mean by "its DTD"?  There are
an infinite number of candidates.
