Re: Are namespace declarations 'counted' as attributes?

It would appear that you are using a SAX 2.0 parser.  In this case the
behaviour that you are seeing is correct because SAX 2.0 deems namespace
declarations to be different to standard attributes. However, depending on
your parser you might be able to control it by setting the core feature:
http://xml.org/sax/features/namespace-prefixes  to "true".

Take a look at the list of SAX 2.0 features at:-
