   Linkname: Web SGML Adaptations Extension                                     
        URL: http://www.sgml.u-net.com/book/sgml-4.htm#Extensions               

   Web SGML Adaptations Extension                                               
   When the Web SGML adaptations provided by Annex K of SGML are available an   
   optional net-enabling start-tag close (NESTC) delimiter can be defined in 
   to the null-end tag delimiter. When this delimiter has been defined, the 
   of an element to be ended with a null end-tag must end with the NESTC 
   Note: If no NESTC delimiter is defined it is assumed to have the same 
   as the NET delimiter                                                         

The Reference Concrete Syntax used by DocBook, HTML, etc. does not
define a NESTC.  Check the SGML declaration (.dcl or .decl) coming with
DTD; xml.dcl features the following definition:

             GENERAL SGMLREF
             HCRO "&#38;#x" -- 38 is the number for ampersand --
             NESTC "/"
             NET ">"
             PIC "?>"
             SHORTREF NONE

The Reference Concrete Syntax just says:

             GENERAL SGMLREF

Note: Annex K "was approved by ISO's SGML technical committee on 5th
December 1997" (Martin Bryan 1997, http://www.sgml.u-net.com/book/ ).

Note 2: As it stands, XML is SGML.
