Validity constraint: ID
Values of type ID MUST match the Name production.
XML Name production is defined at
and obviously can't take a space.
Whatever generated that xml:id is broken. Libxml2 might still register this
as an ID, but subsequent tries at using this id is also likely to fail
In a nutshell spaces are forbidden in ID identifiers.
