The phrase "XML Fragment" is still used in section 13, Messages, of the
XSLT 1.1 spec, as well as now in section 14.3. However, it still isn;t
defined. It's a little clearer from this draft that what's meant is a
string form of some XML markup and text, probabaly not necessarily a
well-formed XML document. However, this term still needs to be defined
more precisely before it's used. For instance, am I correct or not in
assuming that root element is not necessary for a fragment of this
nature?
