[JDEV] Jabberd config file & namespaces

  Is the jabberd configuration file that ships with the distribution a
valid XML file? 

According to the w3c spec (http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/), it
seems like namespaces cannot contain ':', so a name such as
jabber:config:jsm would be invalid (xerces for one chokes on

  Also, I thought you had to declare a namespace before using it - which
isn't done in jabber.xml?

  I am trying to parse the configuration file using xerces/xpath and
those namespace issues are causing trouble - if I fix them jabberd won't
start anymore...

Any suggestion? Thanks!
