LT XML has a flag (NSL_read_strict in the library; -x option to
xmlnorm) which enforces the few XML constraints that are (for
historical reasons) not enabled by default.

Any errors that aren't detected in strict mode should be considered
bugs and reported to me.

LT XML's underlying parser, RXP, is available separately and also
provides namespace support and checking, which is not in LT XML yet.

For more information on RXP and LT XML, see


There is a web page that lets you check documents for well-formedness
and optionally validity and namespace-correctness using RXP at
