"XML documents operated on by XPath must conform to the XML Namespaces
Recommendation [XML Names]."
Is this rule binding on an XSLT 2 processor as well (by virtue of its association with XPath 2)?
<xsl:template match="node()|@*"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template>
The error messages that I posted when initiating this thread a few weeks ago gave me a forensic clue that the above might work (i.e. without an error occurring).

<original message> This seems rather odd.
Running an XSLT identity transform over the following source document with Saxon 9b produces the error underneath:
<:a:apple xmlns:a="foo"> <banana/> </:a:apple>
Obviously the source document is not valid XML but the error message is confusing.
Since when was 1) a colon character allowed to start an NCName which a prefix is, and 2) a QName allowed to contain 2 colon characters which the error message suggests?
