[New-bugs-announce] [issue22743] Specify supported XML version

New submission from Friedrich Spee von Langenfeld:

The W3C has published two versions of the standard specification for the Extensible Markup Language (XML) [version 1.0 and 1.1]. I know that the W3C expects all parsers to understand both versions. I propose to state  here (https://docs.python.org/3/library/xml.html) which versions of XML Python supports, especially, because https://docs.python.org/3/library/xml.etree.elementtree.html uses version 1.0 of the W3C recommendation in its examples. The version compatibility is named in https://docs.python.org/3/library/pyexpat.html#xml.parsers.expat.xmlparser.XmlDeclHandler , but I don´t think a normal user, who only want a quick, but reliable solution, would ever read this entry.

What do you think?
