Here's a patch that fixes the patterns for numeric entities, tag names,
and removes the upper case 'X' case in the special case for an XML
prolog. There are still some oddities, but I decided against making
heroic efforts to fix them. It's probably less important if the patterns
are slightly too liberal (e.g. accepting <a href="qwe<qwe>"> ) than if
they don't recognize what they are alleged to recognize.
