If it's not at least well-formed then no, it's not acceptable. :) I believe those examples resulted from an abortive experiment on Microsoft's part to super-minimize the closing tags, but they have since come back to the One True path. The end tag of the <COMPSR_FIRST> tag should therefore be </COMPSR_FIRST>. The example (and others like it) are about 3-4 months out of date. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
