Re: Namespaces best practice in XML

Why does this > happen? as explained earlier in the thread, the default namespace declared with xmlns=... in the stylesheet has _no_ effect on XPath expressions or XSLT match patterns at all. In your stylesheet match="ppp" means match ppp in no-namespace but your source element is ppp in http://www.eeeeee.com. In XSLT1 you would have to use match="x:ppp" but in XSLT2 you can set xpath-default-namespace="http://www.eeeeee.com" to change the meaning of match="ppp" to mean match ppp in the http://www.eeeeee.com namespace.
