As noted in the wikipedia entry on EBNF, W3C used a different version in
the XML 1.0 spec [1]. We didn't invent however and ^ is pretty common in
regular expression languages.

[^ ] indicates an optional group where everything is allowed except the
options in the group. [^{}] means anything except { or }.
