I hope one of you guys have seen before and can give me a hint as to what I am doing wrong. I cannot find anything pointing me to a solution either in this mailing list or elsewher.

Simple problem : Match an element in a default namespace from an XSL stylesheet.
Wrong solution: (My files are inlined below)
Declaring the same namespace as 'art' within the stylesheet and using the xpath expression "art:Article" to match <Article/> elements.

That does not work. XmlSpy / IE6 has no trouble stylesheeting the same files.

Am I doing something wrong or is Xalan doing something wrong?

Any help and hints greatly apprecieated.

*Source document* <Article xmlns="/type/Article.xsd"> <title>foo</title> <body>bar</body> </Article>

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";
   <xsl:template match="art:Article">Matched!</xsl:template>
