The entire point of the test case is that that particular character is 
likely to cause problems :-)

It's a U+0140, which is permitted by the latest Rec of XML at 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#NT-NameChar> but forbidden (not 
well-formed) according to the previous Rec at 

Most XML implementations follow the old 4th Edition, so they'll consider 
the test case ill-formed. I guess RDFa is meant to be based on the 
latest edition (since I don't see anything that looks like intentional 
references to old versions), but I'm not at all certain about that. So 
this test case is an attempt to clarify the situation.
