Thanks for taking the time to provide such a nice explanation :)

It certainly did help ! It works :) It turns out that I missed the
xml-logicsheet processing instruction. I was under the impression that
introducing an extra namespace attribute was *always* enough to have
the XSP processor use an extra logicsheet. But ... the one noteworthy
exception is: one logicsheet using another logicsheet (..) Obvious
once you've seen it happen - as always.

Thanks for your help!
