   RE: Namespaces problems (SOAP, ...) and general problem of standard sim

Per the W3C specification for namespaces, the "price" element name in the
example you cite is an unqualified name.  The XML Schemas specification
provides for locally scoped names, and also provides that an unqualified
name may be the expression of a locally scoped name.

In short, the example is valid per XML 1.0, valid per the namespaces
specification and valid per the schemas specification.  Per the namespaces
specification alone, the price element does not have a universally-qualified
name, so additional context is needed for its unambiguous interpretation.
XML Schemas provide one way to give that additional context.

I hope this is helpful.  You might also want to take a look at the very nice
XML Schemas Primer editted by David Fallside, at

Best wishes,
Andrew Layman
