What constitutes an XML document?
Hi, I've joined this list primarily because I need an answer to a very specific question: If I am asked to produce an XML document and I come up with something that LOOKS like XML markup - syntactically correct tags, attributes, etc. BUT I do not supply a DTD or a schema, and I refuse to supply a DTD or a schema (because I have actually created the document without designing/creating a DTD or a schema) THEN I understand that the document cannot be validated - but what I need to know is: Is what I have produced actually XML at all, or is it just a document formatted to look like XML? This is not theoretical - it relates to a genuine situation, though I have changed the identity of the author of the document for obvious reasons.
