Is the following line verbatim from your code?  Take another look at it...

Greet the sun all:

I don't if this is how I implemented it or a bug but when I execute the
following code:

StringBuffer t_xml = new StringBuffer("<?xml version = \"1.0\"?>");

t_xml.append("<Foo xml:lang=\"en-US\">  ");

org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder t_saxBuilder = new

org.jdom.Document t_jdomDocument = t_saxBuilder.build(new

I receive the following exception:

org.jdom.JDOMException: The name "" is not legal for JDOM/XML
namespaces: Namespace URIs must be non-null and non-empty Strings..)

Now, looking at page 297 of the XML Bible, it states that xml:lang is a
valid attribute.  I refresh my code with a fresh extract through CVS
this morning. Ideas on what I am doing wrong?
