this project is a PHP 5.2.0 program.  I just looked and I see that PHP
5.2.0 is using Libxslt, but I cannot tell if Libxslt supports XSLT2.
I see that it implements most of EXSLT, what ever that is, so I am

If it is, can you give me a little more info on
default-xpath-namespace, I googled it and did not find any good
examples, and I am not smart enough to understand the official specs.
