  The real problem is that "parser" is from your initial description
not an XML-1.0 parser nor an XML-1.1 parser. Send some flames to Apple
for breaking a standard that everybody else tried to conform to. Then
work around that broken piece in their stack if you want but as always
for conformance problems workarounds it's just lost time in the long term.
