Once I've added the correct namespace declaration, the following test won't match: <xsl:when test="/d:book"> Let alone anything more complicated. Making the docbook namespace the default namespace doesn't help either. I'm a bit confused that "/book" _does_ match - if it were a namespace issue, then I wouldn't expect that to be matching either?
