2.2.1 [XML] Section 2.3, Common Syntactic Constructs


The specification states:

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.

IE9 Mode, IE10 Mode, IE11 Mode and Edge (beta) Mode (All Versions)

Colons are accepted in names only when they are used in accordance with [NamespacesXML1.1].
