Not quite my problem, I think. I want to use an XPath expression that
queries a non-namespaced source document inside a default namespaced
output element. Do I now have to bind a prefix to no namespace? e.g.

declare  namespace pre "";

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
let $num := count(collection("/db/quotes")/pre:quote)
return $num
