Description:
------------
This code will return nothing because of brackets characters in the tag name:

writer->startElement("tag-(with)-brackets");

On the http://php.net/manual/en/function.xmlwriter-start-element.php should be documented what characters should not be there.

From reading the description of $name ("The element name."), I
would assume that any valid XML Name as specified by the
respective XML standard[1] is allowed.

Note also that XMLWriter::startElement() is supposed to raise a
warning, if an invalid $name is given, see
<https://3v4l.org/OurBC>.
