Hi Deborah, Thanks for your reply. I am using usual namespaces in xsl file not in xml file as follows <xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:exsl="http://exslt.org/common" extension-element-prefixes="exsl" xmlns:xalan="http://xml.apache.org/xalan" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"> I am creating javax.xml.transform.Source object for xml file and pass it to transform method of javax.xml.transform.Transformer. I've written a java class that uses org.apache.fop.apps.Fop to convert xml to PDF using xsl file.

This matters, because: > ERROR: 'A colon is not allowed in the name 'QM:' when namespaces are > enabled.' is a rule that comes straight from the Namespaces-in-XML spec: http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-names/#Conformance QUOTE: in a namespace-well-formed document [...] No entity names, processing instruction targets, or notation names contain any colons. You can only avoid that restriction by (a) having whoever produced that processing instruction stop using a colon (which you have said is outside your power), or (b) strictly avoiding the use of namespaces in the source document. Doing (b) may require you to remind the XML parser that it is parsing a non-namespaced document (see http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/javax/xml/parsers/DocumentBuilde rFactory.html#isNamespaceAware() for one such mechanism). As an aside, you can get away with (b) only because the XML spec reluctantly permits colons in names, though the spec pretty much questions the intelligence of anyone who does it: http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/#sec-common-syn QUOTE: 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 You should show that to the person who stopped you from pursuing option (a).
