It seemed impossible to get anything done without it. If you're int he unfortunate situation of needing to resolve namespace prefixes in attribute values and element content, as is the case in an XSLT processor or a schema validator, then you absolutely need to do this. However, probably at least 90% of use cases are much simpler and just need to know the namespaces of each element and attribute, and this doesn't require any extra work. It's not all that hard to keep track of namespaces in scope in SAX. You just use a NamespaceSupport object, push the namespace on in startPrefixMapping and pop it off in endPrefixMapping. Sadly this isn't as well documented or obvious as it should be. -- Elliotte Rusty Harold elharo@m...
