I can't believe I cut and pasted the wrong doc...

Here's the complete stylesheet:

<xsl:stylesheet indent-result="yes" default-space="strip" 
	<xsl:template match="/Person">
		<xsl:for-each select="./Identity/Name">
			<xsl:value-of select="."/>

The line I referred to is the second line where we set the default
namespace to match that of the elements in the input doc. XML would not
see any unqualified element names to apply the default namespace to, but
XSL picks it up and applies it to unqualified element names in template
"select" and "match" attributes.

You can also use a namespace prefix, declared in the usual way, and
explicitly applied to the element names in the "select" and "match"

Apologies for the excessive haste -
