As you say, I may be wrong, but I get the feeling that with 40 years of development and over ten in XSLT, a stylesheet of over 20K lines, or more specifically an integrated set of 25 stylesheets with an average of 1000 lines each, using around 80 namespaces to manage over a terabyte of XML elements, under many XML-based standards, in parallel transformation pipelines, to do Knowledge Resource Entitlement, Modeling, Management, and Sharing, I, at least, can make out the difference between a namespace prefix and its URI.

If we got diverted by new, yet irrelevant information, than please, why not simply guide us back to the issue at hand. I know people that have even more impressive numbers in their resumC), yet still happen to make architctural or other mistakes. That's just human. As it is also human that we all try to contribute and learn from these discussions.

Maybe I can't write, or maybe I am just plainly and simply wrong whatsoever, or maybe this is a list for newbie issues, but in any case, I am sorry that we are all unfortunately wasting valuable energy.

You've been on this list for quite some time, if I recall correctly, so I'm sure you know better than this. Don't blame this on yourself. Asking clear questions is equally hard as giving clear answers and it's easy to become misguided. We're all trying to help. Misunderstandings are just as human as anything else. I've had my own share of misunderstood questions, and answers. It just happens and all we can do is trying to guide the discussion back on track.

I don't know the track, to be honest, I lost it along the lines. If your question is not answered, than by all means, let's try to (re-)understand your question.

Kind regards,
Abel Braaksma
