REXML namespace support

Subject: Re: REXML namespace support

In my case I’m given a string which is a namespace prefix
and I want to
determine the namespace it is associated with. I don’t
have an Element object
so I can’t use the namespace method.

… snip …

It occurs to me that it is possible that you miss-understand
the requirement
on having an element that somebody else mentioned – any
element at all will
do (or processing instruction, or comment) when parsing,
regardless of
its namespace or prefix, and all in-scope prefixes and
namespaces will be
available to you.

You are absolutely correct! I figured out that what I was asking for didn’t
make sense the day after I asked my question. I’m now asking a “context”
element for the namespace that goes with a given prefix using the namespace
method on the REXML Elmeent class and everything is working fine.
