I need to be able to edit xml fragments (i.e. xml without the root node) in Actipro Syntax Editor with web languages addon. Now if I paste such fragment into editor, it will report an error about missing root element. This error report is completely valid, however my question is: is there a way to change this behavior and allow xml fragments without root element? Just like what XmlReaderSettings.ConformanceLevel.Fragment does in .NET framework for xml validation.
