XPath is a language to address parts of the XML document. In XPath, we write expressions, which return a set of nodes (called sequences in XPath 2.0). Though XPath can be used standalone, but it is usually used in combination with a language like XSLT or XQuery. XSLT and XQuery *need* XPath. > > 3. <xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"> Why this is > required at start of every XSL file? An XSLT program file is an XML file. By using this namespace in a XSLT file, we can distinguish between XSLT language instructions and non-XSLT elements/attributes. -- Regards, Mukul Gandhi
