Subject SOLVED: Re: Somone... help... please ...
Date Wed, 09 Mar 2005 20:51:44 GMT
/*[local-name()='elementName']-syntax did the trick.

Fine!

I don't like how the XPaths look either, but at least they match
the right nodes. AFAIK the next version of XPath will be somewhat
less unwieldy with regard to namespaces, but it may take a while
before we can take advantage of the new features.

BTW.
Please let the list know, when your problem is solved
be it by picking up a suggestion or by your own investigation.
That way
1. others may benefit of the same solution and
2. no more suggestions dealing with the issue get posted on a
    thread that can be closed.

Thanx,

Heiner
