More questions/issues then:

A well-formed XML document is not required to have a DTD, internal or
external, correct?  Is a well-formed parser not an XML parser that does not
have access to or does not process a DTD, internal or external?  I guess I
haven't found a clear definition of what a well-formed parser is yet.

If this is true, then a well-formed parser doesn't even have to acknowledge
that entities exist except for the built in ones, and absolutely all
whitespace is preserved, right?
