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
here<http://quality.runrev.com/qacenter/show_bug.cgi?id=7586>- it
applies to any handler dealing with XML attributes not justt
revXmlAttribute
