RE: default namespace in xsl and xpath expressions

It doesn't work because that's the way the language was defined. If you're asking, why was it defined that way, then we can only guess at the history. I think the likely reason is that it makes life very difficult when you have different default namespaces for the source and the result document. However, this is the way XQuery has chosen to do it, and only time will tell whether it makes life easier or harder. Michael Kay
