Well, firstly your example is not legal in XML.
You must always supply a valid and correct SYSETM identifier.
Secondly, it's not valid *HTML* either, so of course
HoTMetaL choked on it.
These are not bugs. I can't say whether XMetal is buggy or solid,
since I have never seen it, but it would be a fairly serious bug
if your example worked.
Apologies for typos, this telnet window is some 30 seconds
