Re: Svar: Re: [xml] XPath problem with namespaces

that was it. I knew I knew it, there was just too much info at once ;-) But why can't it simply register all the namespaces from the document itself in xmlXPathNewContext?

Because there's no way to predict which prefix will be used in the instance (you can even use a default namespace). So you have to bind the prefix that you will use in the xpath expression, and it can be different from the prefix in the document.
