  • The first line must be the "xml" processing instruction with "version" and "encoding" attributes.
  • There must be only one root element in a single XML document.
  • All elements must be closed with the closing tags.
  • One element can be nested inside another element.
  • One element can not be partially nested inside another element.
  • Element attribute values must be quoted with double quotes.
  • Special characters in element attribute values or element contents must be protected using entities, like < and >.
