Checking that an end-tag matches its Paul> start-tag (the current situation) is no easier than not checking. But there are plenty of (non-parsing) applications that benefit from XML standard end-tags. An obvious one is selection of an element from a document; a regexp search for the start-tag, and then just match start and end tags *for that element type*, keeping track of depth *for that element type* (we don't even need to do that if the element type is known not to be nestable in itself). That application need not even notice tags for other element types. -- xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
