Thanks to Dave Megginson for his list. I would appreciate
it if knowledgable people help fill in the blanks below.

I believe there is real merit in this exercise. In
particular, I believe us system integrator types have a lot
to learn from the NOTEs that will hopefully adorn
this table.

The completed version of this table should be
on the Web somewhere.

Fully 1.0 Compliant - Non Validating
1. Expat (As used in Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby, C and C++ apps)

NOTE: Expat does Unicode but that does not
mean that the host language - e.g. Python, C -
had native support for Unicode.

2. XT

Fully XML 1.0 Compliant - Validating

Non XML 1.0 Compliant - Non-Validating
nsgmls (C++)
xmlproc (Python)
