i'd be happy with an operational/denotational definition for xml notation in
terms the dom tree abstraction. maybe, while i'm at it, i'd even hope that it
encompassed the concept 'valid'.

(as a note to the proofreaders, although i've left the 's' word out here, i,
as a rule, prefer unapproved etomological license to licensed grammatical
transgression. despite what my oed's editors may have read.)
