  plus the HTML part seems to hang in a text reader.
In a nutshell your mail is unreadable. Do not sent HTML only mail !
I managed to extract this line of useful content over the half of
dozen pages of badly formatted html output your mailer generated:

  "I just assumed that NULL prefix and href would be the
  same as a NULL namespace. Guess I was wrong."

This is a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), which has been debated,
explained, rehashed over and over here and everywhere XPath could
have been discussed about XPath semantic of operation in presence of
default namespaces. You could for example have read last week messages
on said subject on this very list !
You will note the thread started by your mail is the first one after
that thread in the archive:
And you will also note that
ask to
  "Check the list archives to see if the problem was reported already."

Reading that thread titled "[xml] XPath question" would probably have
saved you quite a bit of time, no ?
