Re: using namespaces to version

Do you use XSLT or XPath on your documents using your vocabulary?
If so, how do you deal with the XPath problems that David mentioned?

My particular problem is: I think a document should be as specific as possible about the version of a language it conforms to, ensuring that the
correct semantics are implied, and the document can be validated
properly. And yet stylesheets need to be relevant to multiple versions of
the language.

One "hack" approach is to qualify all selection statements. I think the
following works fine:

            http://www.example.com/language/1.1# " />
<xsl:template match="*">
        select="*[contains($VALID_NAMESPACE_VERSIONS, namespace-uri())]"/>
