XML Parsing Error on Blogger

Help: I'm a new-ish blog user and have recently encountered a problem where my live bookmarks "failed to load."

When I go search for the problem, I get this:

"XML Parsing Error: prefix not bound to a namespace
Location: http://example.blogspot.com/atom.xml
Line Number 775, Column 67:<span style="font-size:180%;">Prime Minister Paul Martin Defends <st1:country-region st="on">

Needless to say, I have no clue what that means or how to get rid of the offending item. The text is part of a blog I wrote on an election item. Since I posted that blog, the live bookmarks don't work anymore.

Should I remove the entry and repost it? It is currently just a draft.

If someone can advise me in plain English, I would very much appreciate the help.

It doesn't like
<st1:country-region st="on">

Yah, I got that, but how do I take it out? If I go into the Blogger template, I can't find that line or that code -- at least I don't know where to look for it to take it out.

Can you send me in the right direction for removal of the offending string?

More Problems.

The errant string is now morphing!

The Parsing Error is now related to a whole 'nother blog entry that wasn't having any problems before.

The new bad string is:

<o:p> </o:p>The year I was 13, my familiy travelled to <st1:state st="on">

How do I find out what the problem is?
How do I take it out?

ANYONE who's good with blogs and can advise me in really simple language about what's happening win's the geek kindness award.

I believe the "o" prefix is used by Microsoft Office XML; you'll need to declare the namespace or remove the tag.
