The fact that this debate can exist is kind of puzzling to me.  Check
out section 5, "Conformance".  A processor can either be validating
or non-validating.  At no point in the spec does anything say or suggest
that whether or not the processor validates has anything to do with
what is in the document being processed.  I haven't looked at MSXML
closely, but NXP's behavior is obviously correct in this respect - 
it validates or not at user request.

What am I missing? -Tim
