Perhaps it's a matter of relativity whether it's Oxygen and jEdit
having the problems (and presumably other editors/validators too), or
the W3C Validator ;-). As Halindrome's (Shane's) post[1] states, "the
warnings are useless and INCORRECT when namespace support is required.
Since all XHTML family markup languages require namespace support, it
seemed logical to update the validator to also have this support -
albeit in a hackish manner."

While I can understand that the warnings are useless, and I recognise
Shane is probably right when he says they are incorrect, I haven't yet
found the place(s) in the W3C docs that state(s) they are incorrect.

For my own understanding, if anyone can point me to this place - or
these place(s) - I'd be grateful.

Many thanks again,
