    Clarification required on Prolog & Epilog

    Hi All,

    What is prolog & Epilog as part of XML Structure?

    As per I know Prolog conatins 1)XML declaration 2)PI's 3)Comments 4)DOCTYPE

    Epilog contains 1)PI's 2)Comments

    Please correct me if the above is wrong.

    That is rather a scholastic question. As I learned, an XML document has both a logical structure and a physical structure.

    Physically, an XML document has entities (pieces of information), parsed or unparsed.

    Logically, an XML document is composed of declarations, elements, comments, character references, and processing instructions, all of which are indicated in the document by explicit markup.

    Well, sure, we may look to an XML document from another angle, and say that it has a Prologue (declaration, doctype, processing instructions) and a Document Element (the root itself). Never heard about the Epilog
