The XSLT & XPath Quick Reference is misleading. There is no URI:name
node test, only a prefix:name node test.

The Quick Reference has now been emended by deleting the offending line. We apologize for the confusion: the origin of the error has been traced to a brain spasm.

Please feel free to download a fresh copy of the QuickRef at Alternatively, you may take a pen and strike out the line "URI:name" from your copy (under "Node Tests").

Thanks for your vigilance, and please don't hesitate to call attention to any other errors or infelicities in the Quick References.
