2.2.2 [XML] Section 2.3, Common Syntactic Constructs

C0001:

The specification states:

Note:
The Namespaces in XML Recommendation [XML Names] assigns a meaning to names 
containing colon characters. Therefore, authors should not use the colon in XML 
names except for namespace purposes, but XML processors must accept the colon as a 
name character.

MSXML3 and MSXML6

XML names that begin with a colon (for example, :doc) are not valid.

Specifying a name that begins with a colon results in an error with an error code of 0xC00CE504 and an error reason of "A name was started with an invalid character."
