Hi Dave,

many thanks for the explanation.

After dealing with other (X)HTML sources, I have experienced that not
few of them contain sloppy encoded data (as Taco pointed out).

There are even some mismatches that xmllint doesn’t solve automatically
(as Taco already mentioned too).

Now I understand that I will have also to curate tidy XML sources to
typeset them with ConTeXt.

Many thanks for your help again,
