RE: xmlns attr for element nodes creating problem with
It's rather unorthodox to treat the presence of a namespace declaration as significant if there are no elements or attributes in your document actually using that namespace: this isn't the way namespaces were intended to be used. However, it can be done: <xsl:copy-of select="//INDEX[namespace::doc='http://xmlns.oracle.com/ku']"/> What you can't do is to treat namespace declarations as attributes. In the XPath data model, namespaces and attributes are quite different things, that just happen to share a similar surface syntax. Also: who allocated the namespace "http://xmlns.oracle.com/ku" and what does it mean? Namespaces in "oracle.com" should (as a matter of etiquette and good design practice) be allocated only by Oracle Corp as the owner of the domain name.
