The "application" as defined in XML 1.0 is the set of things that work
conceptually on top of the XML processor. If you use DOM Level 3 L&S it
would be the program that invokes the relevant method, if you enter the
address of some document in your web browser's address bar it would be
the "web browser". If it happens to load an XHTML document, it would be
an XHTML user agent in which case XHTML user agent conformance require-
ments apply.
