Yes - KOffice :-) We currently look for "office:styles" etc., not for "the element named prefix:styles where prefix was associated with urn:oasis:names:tc:openoffice:xmlns:office:1.0", as proper namespace support would mandate. This is due to the lack of namespace support in Qt's DOM implementation. And I believe that doing it by hand in KOffice itself would make the reading much slower. So I would actually like it very much if the specification could request that the given prefixes are used by everyone. I also assumed that many hand-made scripts relied on the current prefixes, but I have no proof of that. -- David Faure, firstname.lastname@example.org, sponsored by Trolltech to work on KDE, Konqueror (http://www.konqueror.org), and KOffice (http://www.koffice.org).
