Subject: Re: [dita] foreign element description issue (non-XML?)

But the *content* of the <foreign> element is not XML, meaning that it
cannot, itself, be parsed as XML, which is the intended meaning of the
statement you cite.

The <foreign> element itself is of course XML. It's content may or may not
be XML.
