Re: [xml-dev] XML spec: Why is colon ':' a NameStartChar?

----- Original Message From: "Hermann Stamm-Wilbrandt"

So  <:/>  is valid XML for XML processors without namespace processing?
For MicroXML?
For any other processor?
In the case of MicroXML, colons are not allowed anywhere in element or attribute names!

I can't see why it's not a valid name in regular XML, although it might not be a wise choice due to it's use in namespaces (even though you mentioned 'without namespace processing').
