Good lord, you're right: if I bind the namespace to "file:" it works, but if I bind it to "expath-file:" (following the example in the Saxon documentation), it fails.

That doesn't seem right to me. But at least it works!

Cheers,
Martin

Hi there,

I'm using Saxon 9.5.1.3 PE in Oxygen 15.2 with XSLT 2.0. I'm trying
to use the expath-file functions, which the documentation says are
available. This is a simple version of what I'm trying:


...xmlns:expath-file="http://expath.org/ns/file"...
[snip]

xmlns:file="http://expath.org/ns/file"

is currently not giving me that error.

Disturbingly, file:exists() is returning true about a file that isn't
showing up in a directory that isn't there on the file system, so I've
clearly got a ways to go with this, but I think that's the correct
namespace so far as Oxygen is concerned.  (Though I am using XSLT 3.0).
