    Please do not pretend to support XML 1.1 when it doesn't.


When I validate the following XML 1.1 document by Direct Input:

<?xml version="1.1"?>

The Validator says "This Page Is well-formed XML!".  So far, so good.
But when I validate the following XML 1.1 document:

<?xml version="1.1"?>

Then the Validator emits all sorts of bogus error messages.  Both
documents are well-formed XML 1.1 documents.  Apparently
the underlying XML processor doesn't support XML 1.1 (yet).

It would be great if the Validator actually supports XML 1.1, but
until an underlying XML processor provides support for XML 1.1,
IMHO it would be better to not pretend to support XML 1.1.
