Colons can be special. If the parser is namespace aware (most are), ':' in
the name of an element follows a prefix that must be bound to a URI via an
xmlns:foo attribute on an ancestor-or-self element. Could that be your
problem? Perhaps put your XML at a URL somewhere and point us to it. What
exactly is the parser saying?
