So, I went to the government NVD website:

I downloaded the CPE Dictionary and unpacked it. It looks like standard 

I copy and paste the standard XML example given on the Clojure XML 
documentation page:

 cpe-dictionary (-> "official-cpe-dictionary_v2.3.xml" io/resource io/file 
clj-xml/parse zip/xml-zip)

I get:

clojure.xml/*startparse-sax*                            xml.clj:  76        

       jdk.internal.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke  43

           jdk.internal.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke  77

          jdk.internal.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0         317


I'm wondering, how do I figure out what is wrong here? I'm going to assume 
the government is offering reasonably standard XML, so where would the 
problem arise? How do I figure out a way around this? 

The CPE dictionary is 386 megabytes so I can't share the hold file here, 
but when I run "head" on it, the beginning looks like this:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

<cpe-list xmlns:config="";
