If you do want to use a namespace then you have to declare the namespace. It looks to me that you do not really want a namespace here and that the prefix ref: is part of the element name, being a reference. In that case you should not use : but instead call your element <ref_SECTION or <refSECTION or <ref-SECTION etc. David _____________________________________________________________________ This message has been checked for all known viruses by Star Internet delivered through the MessageLabs Virus Scanning Service.
