[jdom-interest] Problem with JDOM/Xerces parser

Whilst trying to parse some XHTML Basic I got the following error message
"The target "IS10744:arch" is not legal for JDOM/XML Processing Instructions:
Processing instruction targets cannot contain colons."
this came about when trying to resolve the DTD at:
I am using JDOM 7 and Xerces 1.2.3.
Having checked the JDOM source it comes from JDOM...
That DTD was gained from looking at the DTD:
Just to double check I went and tried to use a different parser in the
Openwave SDK version 5.1 and got the following error message for the same DTD:
"Entity, EntityRef, PI, Notation names, or NMToken cannot contain a
colon. Line 36, Position 16
Now, since I got the error in 2 different parsers I then contacted the HTML
Editors at W3C and got the following response (from Jesse McCarthy
[mccarthy36 at earthlink.net]):
"Gary, I would tend to think that your parsers are in error as according to
the XML 1.0 specification the colon ":" is unambiguously allowed in
processing instruction targets, among other things.
So the question is, is this really an error in JDOM? If so, will there be a
fix available? Or should I go to the source myself and "remove" the error
Please find attached the XHTML Basic I was parsing...
