Thanks Michael,

Had a look at the specification link you sent, I don't get it (that part
deals with valid spaces in nodes?).
I did see this:
Standalone Document Declaration
An example XML declaration with a standalone document declaration:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone='yes'?>

Anyway, I'll leave it be and try if it imports without that addition. If
it doesn't, I'll get back on the list & bug tracker.
