This is normal text [italic=on]but[italic=off] the last word was different.

which is also using the markup-principle but is not XML.)

HTML is one very specific variety of XML, with a fixed set of tags that can occur and a fixed order of tags that have to be there:


would be an error in HTML because the head-tag has to come before the body-tag. In XML this would be perfectly OK because there is no such rule. In fact there is no list of tags which are allowed and no prescribed structure they are allowed to have like there is in HTML.

So, in short: every HTML text is a valid XML text too, but not every XML has to be calid HTML.

I hope this helps.

use XML::Grove::AsCanonXML; # Using as_canon_xml method on XML::Grove objects: $string = $xml_object->as_canon_xml( OPTIONS ); # Using an XML::Grove::AsCanonXML instance: $writer = XML::Grove::AsCanonXML->new( OPTIONS ); $string = $writer->as_canon_xml($xml_object); $writer->as_canon_xml($xml_object, $file_handle); DESCRIPTION
