Re: [xml-dev] How to get XPath in a XSLT shylesheet

Well, I don't expect many people use XSD to augment their XSDs, due to the
complication. But Michael is of course correct that the code is not 
robust (for
the maybe 0.0001% of documents that have multiple prefixes for the same
namespace in sibling elements.)

But I am interested in how many other vocabularies are regularly used 
with more
than one typical prefix. I guess html is the leading contender (no 
prefix in xhtml,
but prefix in other places).
