Yes, examples that the _Validator_ will pass invalid XML off as valid, but
not that _SP_ will. While we rely on SP to do all the dirty work, it's just
conceivable that it could be a problem with how we are calling SP or the
pre-processing we do and not in SP itself.

Maybe Gerald knows a bit more about this. I wouldn't personally be able to
tell invalid XML from an Elephant if it was two seconds away from stepping
on me. :-)
