Dimitre's tool works fine, though. Sometimes I'm wondering if this "cleverness" of the tool was really the right decision -- one can get accustomed to being served and could forget to specify the namespace in his/her stylesheet. While the Xpath Visualizer spoils the user in this, the main purpose was to allow as many features of XPath (and some of XSLT) to be made available, as possible. As we see in the example with xpathtester, the other alternative does not give the user the possibility to practice certain types of XPath expressions with namespaces. ===== Cheers, Dimitre Novatchev. http://fxsl.sourceforge.net/ -- the home of FXSL XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
