I have got problem with XPath.
When following program is run "./program hello.xml, ( hello.xml is under

it doesn't show node <marek>


marek is in a namespace. The "//marek" XPath expression won't select
it. The XPath spec is at
this issue is an XPath FAQ, it's just that lixml2 implements the spec !



although this as been asked and answered zillion times on this list,
I'd just add to Daniel, that you may still programmatically register a
namespace prefix for "urn:iana:xml:ns:epp-1.0" (say "foo") with the
xpath context, using something like

xmlXPathRegisterNs(context, "foo", "urn:iana:xml:ns:epp-1.0");

and then use it in your queries as "//foo:marek".

It's much shorter that writing the pure XPath like 
//*[local-name()="marek" and namespace-uri()="urn:iana:xml:ns:epp-1.0"].

  Right and see xpath1.c full example
