They don't care what the prefix is, only what the namespace URI is. But, within the document itself, the prefix is a shorthand for associating the namespace URI with an element or attribute, so if you change the prefix that's associated with the namespace URI, you need to change it everywhere for that context. So it doesn't matter what prefix you use, although it is common to use a well-known prefix for clarity. -- Tom Bradford --- The dbXML Project --- http://www.dbxml.org/ We store your XML data a hell of a lot better than /dev/null
