Regarding your quote.... I think it is taken out of content.... Here is the
"The scope of a default namespace declaration extends from the beginning of
the start-tag in which it appears to the end of the corresponding end-tag,
excluding the scope of any inner default namespace declarations. In the
case of an empty tag, the scope is the tag itself. A default namespace
declaration applies to to all unprefixed element names within its scope.
Default namespace declarations do not apply directly to attribute names;
the interpretation of unprefixed attributes is determined by the element on
which they appear. If there is a default namespace declaration in scope,
the expanded name corresponding to an unprefixed element name has the IRI
of the default namespace as its namespace name. If there is no default
namespace declaration in scope, the namespace name is null. The namespace
name for an unprefixed attribute name is always null. In all cases, the
local name is local part (which is of course the same as the unprefixed
name itself). "
