Difference between valid XML doc and wellformed XML doc

Hi, Can any tell me whats the difference between valid XML document and well formed XML document. As far as I understand we can say XML document is valid if it follows XML format and well format if it follows the XML schema format if its using any namespaces. Am I in the right way? Please confirm and help me in clearing my doubt.

It's the other way around. If it follows the XML spec then it's well-formed. It's valid if it validates according to some schema (which could be DTD, XML Schema or Relax-NG).
