Or is it? > No, it's not a bug. You have already created the foo element with the name ("", foo). Adding a namespace node can't change the name of its parent element, and an element named ("", foo) can't have a namespace node that binds prefix "" to URI "bar". The answer is to put the element foo in the right namespace at the time you create it. Regards, Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/ http://twitter.com/michaelhkay
