Hi All,

I am trying to get a small xslt to get the d attribute value of an svg path element. My code is the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0"
    xmlns:svg="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" >
    <xsl:output  method="text" indent="yes" />

    <xsl:template match="svg:path">
        <xsl:value-of select="@d"/>
            <xsl:apply-templates />



The svg file has input of the following:

<path d="M145 20 v 374M210.16666666666669 20 v 374M275.33333333333337 20 v 374M340.50000000000006 20 v 374M405.66666666666674 20 v 374M470.8333333333334 20 v 374M536.0000000000001 20 v 374" class="gridlines"/> 

When i try and run the xslt, with the Saxon HE version, i get the following error:

   java.net.UnknownHostException: www.w3.org
Transformation failed: Run-time errors were reported

I understand that working with namespaces can be tricky, but i just wanted to get the text out.

If anyone could shine some light on this, i would appreciate it!
