Future XSL questions are best directed to xsl-list@mulberrytech.org

Here's some helpful hints...

| <NavigationElement xlink:href="index.xml" xlink:title="Overview"
| xml-href="true"/>
| I don't get the href value using <xsl:value-of select="@href"/>.

For the first one, you need to qualify href with xlink:href...

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<NavigationElement xmlns:xlink="urn:xlink"

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xlink="urn:xlink" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
  <xsl:template match="/NavigationElement">
    Href = <xsl:value-of select="@xlink:href"/>

| <Meta xmlns="meta.dtd">
| <Title>
| title
| </Title>
| </Meta>
| <xsl:value-of select="Meta/Title"/>, works only if i remove the xmlns
| declaration.

For the second one, you're hitting a limitation of
XPath 1.0 regarding default namespaces. You must
explicitly associate a prefix with the namespace uri
"meta.dtd" and then use that prefix to find Meta/Title
as meta:Meta/meta:Title as in:

<Meta xmlns="meta.dtd">

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:M="meta.dtd" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
  <xsl:template match="/">
    Title = <xsl:value-of select="M:Meta/M:Title"/>
