"xmlns" declares a default namespace, and may be empty. (See the namespaces spec at http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/#scoping-defaulting) > Therefore - you need a parser that is namespace aware - else you get > an error. Not so. the xml4j parser distributed with xercxes 1_1_3 processes tpaML_1_1_6 without error. This is in fact the expected behavior. I suspect this error is an artifact of the parser that was used, not a problem in the DTD. Sam
