Hi Wolfgang,

thanks for your reaction

You need to match a document that has elements <doc>, <p>, <Char> that are

Your output document is supposed to be in the namespace "
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml", and you'd like to use the shortened notation
known as *default namespace*. In the 2nd version of your XSLT you introduce
a default namespace, and, sure enough, the matches written without a prefix
aren't in the no namespace ghetto any more.

That puzzles me a bit, because templates p and Char *do* match. The difference is the char template, the char elements are now part of the documentnode in the blip variable.
I tried to change the namespace of that documentnode, but up till now, I have not succeeded.

You may, however, at any time cancel the definition for the default
namespace by writing


and everything below that has no prefix hasn't a namespace name either.

Assuming this has to be added to a template match, I tried this:

  <xsl:template xmlns='' match='char' mode='#all'>
    <c><xsl:apply-templates /></c>

But that does not work either, nor when I change that to the xhtml namespace.

Maybe I misunderstood you. Thanks for the explanation; I realize more and more it is essential to have a good understanding of namespaces...

regards, Ruud
