You are right, the namespace thing was a copying error, it is "abcd:LongitudeDecimal" really. As for the rest, the document structure is as posted previously (LongitudeDecimal is a descendant of Gathering), the template it is in currently matches the root "/" - could that be the reason why it works? The root node is not a (direct) parent to either, though.
