+Is it in a spec somewhere that the xml declaration should not be
+acceptable for element ? The current ms behaviour is actually quite
+useful as it allows the use of the same piece of code to parse various
+types of xml fragments ( ie consider a full document as a subset of
+element ). 
+I agree that propogating microsoft implementation errors isn't a
+particularly good thing but the counter argument is that the more
+incompatibilites exist the bigger the hassle it is to port code
+between the 2 platforms. If we're sure that the ms impl is wrong in
+this case then thats fine I can work around it.
