Do you mean xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" and  
xmlns:m="http://www.lars.com/mynamespace"?

If you correct those, it should validate on namespace-aware validators. If  
you mean why it doesn't validate on the W3C validator (after the change  
above) then the answer is because it is not yet namespace aware. I believe  
the next release will be.

%id.attribute; is the id attribute if I am not mistaken.

Hope this help!
