Re: Problems validating XML

Well.... I am personally convinced auto-detection is reliable.  However, 
in the event that you do not want to include the XML PI in your XML 
document (it is not required) a button would be nice too.  I am happy to 
implement auto-detection AND a button.  Button would be something like:

Parsing Mode:  o  auto-detect
                        o  SGML
                        o  XML

Any thoughts on which approach is preferable?
