I believe it is true but I would be delighted to
be wrong.

Does anyone knowledgeable in the minutia
of XML compliance care to list the extant
parsers and put them into fully XML 1.0
compliant and non-XML 1.0 compliant camps?

The next step would be to segregate the
XML 1.0 compliant parsers along the 
lines of things they do that are
"optional" per the spec. that cause
interoperability problems.
