Yes. FOO documents are XML documents  You can process FOO documents
with generic XML processors or with specialist FOO processors.

Substitute FOO for HTML and XML for SGML and you have a well known
existing pattern:-)

I'd love to see an XML-RT. RT = Round Trip. A subset of XML 1.1 that can
be processed with a generic XML 1.1 processor but when processed
with an XML-RT processor is guaranteed to allow you to easily reproduce the
input UnicodeWithAngleBrackets as its output UnicodeWithAngleBrackets.

Earlier, Walter Perry used a master craftsman analogy. Is it not reasobable
to expect every master craftsman to be able to - at a minimum - put materials
through his hands without messing them up?
