Hi Ken,

That looks great. The only thing better would be to have a single regex expression, typically stored in a string variable to be used in any match. The alternative is probably to build a smal function that combines the two "match", to better isolate the logic.

Thank you.

This looks quite good.  The XML character classes are quite useful

dash after the colon, implying that the local-name would not start with
a name-start character.  Is that case covered also?

Well spotted!

How about something like:

matches($str,'^(\i\c*:)?\i\c*$') and matches($str,'^([^:]+:)?[^:]+$')
