I assume, you did subscribe to the message using XPATH, i.e. 
<key querytype="XPATH">
/xmlBlaster/key[metadata/BasicTemporal/beginning_date_time_group/hour_time>=21 ]

As Michele, I find the < and > suspicious. Not only because they may be 
interpreted by the shell. The error you received looks more like 
- XmlBlaster tried to parse the key as an xml document
- SAX (the parser engine) choked on the "<" 
- It did not choke on the ">"

Why? Because SAX looks for the next <xml-tag> or </end-tag>, that would be 
some sequence beginning with "<". So, it interprets 
x <2 as a typo for 
x <2> 

This also explains, why the ">" does not hurt: SAX would only care about a 
">", if an opening "<" was there.

So, Michele's suggestion to enclose your message in "double-" or 
'single-brackets' should also help in this situation. 

And finally, if XmlBlaster makes use of the key's DTD, the XPATH-expression 
could be a CDATA-Element (an unparsed Element) - but I do not know, if this 
would stop SAX from running into trouble.

Good night,
