An XML parser must be able to parse all (1) well-formed XML documents. The
W3C XML recommendation provides a definition for well-formed XML documents,
and can be found here:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xml-20040204/

(1) I'll quality this a bit since the size of XML documents is unbounded
    and computer resources are.

Cheers,
