I'm having trouble validating a document against my DTD when I throw in
namespaces.  I'm using the xerces-j parser.

my XML document looks something like this:

with DTD snippet:
<!ELEMENT CellGroup ( Cell | style:Input | style:Output)+>

I get the error:
The content of element type "CellGroup" must match

I tried taking out the namespaces, like this:

with DTD:
<!ELEMENT CellGroup (Cell | Input | Output)+>

and it worked fine.  (which was very strange, b/c I actually did *not* have
a declaration for the element "Input", just for "style:Input".)

The xerces-j parser does process namespaces, but from my reading of the
namespace spec and from Harold's "XML Bible", I thought I was doing the
right thing.

I'd appreciate any tips on what I'm doing wrong.
