Shameless plug for votes for this bug report:

While the xmlns issue is fixed we still can't use the common and basic name
spaces in attributes. Take this RSS example and try it in the message box:

get "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?><rss version='2.0' xmlns:atom='
> http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom' xmlns:content='
> http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/'><channel></channel></rss>"
> put revCreateXMLTree(it, true, true, false) into treeID
> put revXMLAttributes(treeID, "rss", tab, CR)

Only one value for "xmlns" is returned. We cannot work with any number of
XML based web services until this matter is resolved. The example is just a
common example, but it comes up very often with most of the major web
services. What we need returned is the entire attribute name including the
name space - so "xmlns:atom" and "xmlns:content" - there is very little
point in returning the name space without the attribute name.

If others are having this issue could you vote on the report found

applies to any handler dealing with XML attributes not justt
