Just a few stupid questions.

Is the xml format xhtml or something else?

Does the document include formatting stuff from wikipedia (sidebars, headers, 
etc.), or is it just the article itself?

Do hyperlinks within the document refer to external pages on wikipedia, 
non-existent relative pages, or what?
