   problem with IE5

Betty Harvey sent me mail about a document which was accepted by RXP
but rejected by IE5.  Here is a small example which shows the problem:

 <?xml version="1.0"?>
 <!DOCTYPE test [
 <!ELEMENT test ANY>
 <!ELEMENT foo:bar ANY>

It produces this error in IE5:

 Reference to undeclared namespace prefix: 'foo'. Line 6, Position 1

It doesn't make any difference if I put a namespace declaration for 
foo on the test element.

It looks as if IE5 somehow expects namespace prefixes in the DTD to be
declared.  Can anyone explain this?
