in thread LibXML, XPath and Namespaces

That wouldn't be a valid XPath. XPath "foo" matches child elements named "foo" in the null namespace. There's no way to specify a default namespace for nodetests in an XPath.

Furthermore, gt is a prefix, not a namespace. http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/CM/envelope is the namespace in this case. gt is completely arbitrary, meaningless.

    Yes, I'm aware the prefix is meaningless. Word it how you like, I wanted some way of making a null/default prefix map to my namespace. I know that XML has its flaws and this seems to be one of them.

    A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.
      It's a limitation of XPaths, not XML. It's entirely possible to define the default namespace in XML.
