OK. This looks clear but it only applies to XML. So all XML documents must 
be, at least, well formed.

But now on to H74 which applies to only HTML and XHTML:
"Ensuring that all id attribute values are unique for the document AND that 
opening and closing tags are used according to specification"

The "used according to specification" text must mean the tags must validate. 
I think it also means there must be a specification (DTD) present in the 
document.

The text "opening and closing tags" must mean all tags in the document. (Can 
a tag be anything other that an opening or closing tag?).

So does this mean that all HTML and XHTML documents must have a DTD and 
validate?
