   Non-printing character in XML and expat

When using expat to parse the following xml:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
I get an error "test.xml:3:0 reference to an invalid character number"
To double-check, I saved the xml as a UNICODE file and ran xmlwf on it; I
got the same error.

Is this valid XML?  It seems like the spec allows it, and MS's xml notepad
reads it OK.  It looks like the problem in expat might be that
checkCharRefNumber is called too often.

Many thanks,
