I just found this from google:

Xpaths like attribute names do not use the default namespace binding:
unprefixed QNames in XPath always refer to elements or attributes in no

(This is a FAQ)

it is? I can't find it in the FAQ .. I think it may be the source of my problem? I assumed that the default namespace would apply to everything in the stylesheet, including xpaths.

So would I solve my problem like this:

  <xsl:template match="mynms:form_textarea">

Hi, I think this might be a problem with my XSLT rather than axkit. Help?

Subject: trouble with namespaces

I'm having trouble getting namespaces to work in a pipeline with PIs. it works in a test but doesn't work with these files. I have a largish xslt rng2mid.xsl that contains this amongst many other templates:

<xsl:template match="text"> <form_textarea xmlns="mynms"> FOOBAR </form_textarea> </xsl:template>

and then the next stylesheet (mid2html.xsl) in the pipeline is this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>


  <xsl:template match="form_textarea" xmlns="mynms">

  <xsl:template match="*">
    <xsl:copy-of select="."/>


I've got axtrace on, and FOOBAR gets placed into the output, but never gets transformed into SIMONHELLO. What's going on?
