Hi All,
I am using an XSLT to parse an XML to produce a text file. The issue is tha=

s default namespace in xml.

If I have read your example correctly (some email encoding issues made that harder than usual), you have an XML element whose namespace is "" and whose local name is "model".

First, note that the namespace name you give is a relative
URI.  Strictly speaking the various XML-related specifications
do not define what happens when relative URIs are used as
namespace names; in particular, they do not have a defined
XML infoset.

So the first thing I'd try is using "";
or some other absolute URI as the namespace name.

Second, are you confident that your XSLT stylesheet has
a match for an element named "model" in the namespace
""?  If the template match attributes match
"model" and so on, they won't fire for {}model
and the other elements in your document.

In case of doubt, show us a little of your stylesheet.

I hope this helps.
