I don't want to flog any dead horses, so I hope this hasn't been covered already, but is it really an error to have the same namespace declared twice, with different prefixes? i.e., is the following really not legal <tag xmlns:p1="urn:person:000-000-000" xmlns:p2="urn:person:000-000-000"> <p1:first>John</p1:first> <p2:last>Smith</p2:last> </tag> And, if that is illegal, is the following legal: <tag xmlns="urn:person:000-000-000" xmlns:p1="urn:person:000-000-000"> <!--etc.--> I looked through the Namespace spec, but couldn't find anything making this illegal, so did I miss something, or did I misunderstand the conversation?
