So "to match the namespace URI rather than the prefix" should be the
correct beahviour of any XPath processor, or is that left to the
processor implementation?

Neverthleless, i'm going to try to get some help on the Sarissa list too.

Thanks for your time.

I think XPath is in-scope for this list.

Without reading the Sarissa specs I would certainly expect it to work. (That
is, to match the namespace URI rather than the prefix). Sounds as if your
issue might be specific to Sarissa, or to the XPath processor in your
particular browser; or it might be some misunderstanding.
