The "regardless of namespace bit" isn't true in firefox at least which renders xhtml as xhtml (including link semantics) if the xml elements are in the xhtml namespace. (At least it did until recently haven't checked on the latest builds) Why _would_ you expect them to be underlined if the xml is not being rendered? I certainly would not. If you send unknown xml to a browser it is not styled _at all_ Why would you expect links to work as links if headings are not working as headings and paragraphs are not working as paragraphs? If you associate a stylesheet with the xml via xml-stylesheet or another means then you can make paragraphs be rendered as paragraphs and make links be underlined. (If you use css rather than xsl I think you still can't make the links be links but that's an issue for css) David ________________________________________________________________________ The Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1249803.
