I figured this one out, sorry. First, the XML I posted in the previous post
parses just fine, but my app wasn't picking up the file (damn hard-coded
filenames :P).

The original file is failing to parse because I have things like:

In there. The spirit parser doesn't handle &#30; ...
To be more correct, the exception is thrown by line 85 of xml_parser_utils.hpp,
which on quick inspection, doesn't support '#' (or by extension #x). This is
the root of the problem, as I noticed in the spirit parsing file, it DOES infact
define what to do with &#num; tokens.

So basically the parser utils has to be updated to support &#num; and such.

Sorry for the confusion.

PreZ :)
