Re: namespace reference in xsl without being attribute
KK: My goal was to match what I thought was the correct document. I have asked for a real sample from the customer directly but have not received one, yet. I do not know that the form would be a problem. since the dtd defaults the xmlns:ce attribute, any XML application that's using an XML parser that reads the DTD will see the same input whether or not the attribute is explictly there. So in a pure XML view of the world having that attribute in the file can not cause a problem. The problem of course is that some wicked people (including er me:-) don't always use XML tools to process XML files, sometimes they go grep "<serial-issue>" file.xml and get upset when the search for that string failed as the file actually has <serial-issue xmlns:ce=" http://www.elsevier.com/xml/common/dtd "> and grep doesn't use an XML parser to add dtd defined defaults before doing a search...
