 Description   

This error does not present till you attempt to emit xml that has a string where the element function is expecting a keyword. This is double hard to figure out at first because the error message is vague. I am requesting that the element function is allowed to use strings instead of keywords or the error message is cleaned up so that the "user" error is clear.

I have added this. Supporting keywords and strings seems to be common in some of the other contrib libraries. Now you can use the keyword :foo or the string "foo" for tags and attributes.
