<ItemsList><Items name=">kk"><SuppName>raj3</SuppName></Items></ItemsList>
while reviewing for the exam the above example is suppose to be well formed,
but to me it doesn't appear that way - the below part looks wrong to me
<Items name=">kk"> the > before the kk
why is this

This looks wrong to me as well. I think the correct way is:
name=&_quot;&_gt;kk&_quot;
Note: no underscore here!

It is well formed – only the characters < and & are not allowed in the attribute content. & is always interpreted as the beginning of an entity or character reference.
Cheers,

Thanks for your reply Dan and Don, so it is well formed, but not valid?

To decide whether XML document is valid or not you must provide a DTD or Schema against which it will be validated.
