Subject: [xsl] XML namespaces problem|

Hi there, I am having a problem with XML namespaces being present on a message that I am attempting to transform. The namespace xlmns="..." (actual namespace removed but it is a valid url - no actual data there though) in the first element is causing XSL to fail to be able to transform the message properly. With this removed, it works fine, but with it present, it does not. Is there any way I can get XSL to disregard the namespace or otherwise work around this problem, without pre-transforming using another XSL file? Also interestingly enough, if the namespace is prefixed (i.e. takes the form xmlns:prefix="..."), then I can "avoid" the problem by using relative paths from the following element. However, in this case the namespace is not prefixed and is causing the XSL to fail to transform the message properly. Help! The message in question is quite long, but takes the format: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?> <message xmlns="..."> <m_control> ... </m_control> <m_content> <b_control> ... </b_control> etc thanks in advance, Andrew Ballantine This e-mail is private and confidential and is protected by copyright.
