John, you know I consider the Infoset pernicious at best. ;-> Unless the namespaces spec changes - which I'd like to see but doubt will happen - nothing would change in the Infoset, and this interpretation would take place at the application level. If there were to be a change in the spec, then yes, I'd like to see unprefixed attributes have a [namespace name] property that is identical to the value of the [namespace name] property of the element. That's something to be considered when XML reaches an evolutionary point where it's considered reasonable to break some things as part of fixing the overall mess. I think we've been there for a while, but doubt it will happen anytime soon. In the meantime... back to the monastery. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com
