Dear Björn,

Yes, that grammar describes clearly what an XML 1.1 document is. The  
part that interests us however is what XML *processors* are required  
to do, which is very clearly specified in section 5.1 of the XML 1.1  
specification:

"XML 1.1 processors MUST be able to process both XML 1.0 and XML 1.1  
documents. Programs which generate XML SHOULD generate XML 1.0,  
unless one of the specific features of XML 1.1 is required."

Thank you for your comments, please tell us within two weeks if you  
are not satisfied,
