2.2.19 [XML] Section 5.2, Using XML Processors
The specification states:
The behavior of a validating XML processor is highly predictable; it must read every piece of a document and report all well-formedness and validity violations. Less is required of a non-validating processor; it need not read any part of the document other than the document entity. ...
IE9 Mode, IE10 Mode, and IE11 Mode (All Versions)
A non-validating XML parser is used.
