Thanks, this solved my problem (as I stated it)
perfectly.  You're 8 lines of XPATH did what my 50
couldn't :)  I guess there is a bit of a learning
curve.  Still, I have one additional problem.  I
realized that I didn't quite state my problem fully. 
It's not suffiecent that I replace elements named
ABC:jason.Smith with elements named ABC:Smith, I've
also got to repace any elements whose names begin with
ABC:jason.Smith the elements whose names begin with
ABC:Smith while leaving the rest of the element name

For example, I've got to make the following changes
anywhere they occur in the document:

ABC:jason.Smith       ->   ABC:Smith
ABC:jason.Smith.foo   ->   ABC:Smith.foo

I've been playing with the starts-with( ) and
substring-after( ) functions but I can't get it to
work.  If there is an easy solution you could share
with me it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in
