If it is meant to be XML 1.0 conformant, it should allow colons when you are not performing namespace processing (though it's probably a good idea not to use them anyway). Others may correct me, but I don't think that a conformant processor is allowed to reject well-formed XML (expect, perhaps, if the processing is performing validation and the document is not valid). Namespaces cannot change this, since XML 1.0 is an independent standard. All the best, David -- David Megginson david@m... http://www.megginson.com/ xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
