Sorry the reply was so brief, it was late at night, and I thought the
information might be enough.

Let's write expanded names in the form {namespace}local.

In the document

<A xmlns="yyyy">

you have three elements whose expanded names are {yyyy}A, {yyyy}B, and

In XSLT 1.0, to match an element {yyyy}A, you need to bind a namespace
prefix to yyyy and use that prefix in the match pattern or XPath expression
step. For example

<xsl:template match="y:A" xmlns:y="yyyy">
 <xsl:value-of select="y:B/y:C"/>

In XSLT 2.0, you can set xpath-default-namespace="yyyy" instead.

Ok, Let's say my XML file consists of 3 elements A,B,C with A being the outermost element with a namespace declaration of xmlns="yyyyy". In what way are the element names B and C changed and in what way must I change the stylesheet to match those new names. This has been a problem at work that I have been putting off for the last 3 months and it has gotten to the point where I must have it working. I just started using XSL 5 months ago so being explicit would help very much so.
