Description Henry S. Thompson 2009-02-04 19:51:45 UTC
The above document is accepted as valid, but it shouldn't be:  It contains a processing instruction with a : in its name, which is disallowed by the Namespaces REC (see section 7)

I suspect this bug may be better off sent to the libxml2 dev team, since that is the lib used for xml-wf check.
