A well-formed XML is the one which has root element and all tags are closed properly, attributes are defined properly, their value is also quoted properly. On another hand, a valid XML is the one which can be validated against an XSD file or schema. So it's possible for an XML to be well-formed but not valid because they contain tags which may not be allowed by their schema.
