I'm confused :(

This is a bad example, but say you have something like:

<x:html xmlns:x='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'>
  <x:body><x:p>Moved to <x:a href='http://frob.com'>here</x:a>.</x:p>
    <x:key uri="http://frob.com"/>

And then in your XML Schema you have (in the body element defintion):

<xs:key name="x_uris">
  <xs:selector xpath=".//x:key"/>
  <xs:field xpath="@uri"/>
<xs:keyref name="uri_refs" refer="x_uris">
  <xs:selector xpath=".//x:a"/>
  <xs:field xpath="@x:href"/>

You need the namespace on the attribute for the xs:field for the keyref. So it
is in the the same space, right?

sorry about the/my confusion,
