Hi Joseph,

I believe the XPath expressions in the examples need to have namespace
qualifiers on them, e.g. ancestor-or-self::n1:elem1 rather than just
ancestor-or-self::elem1

Also, in a transform the namespace would have to be defined so that the
expression would evaluation correctly.

Thirdly, the parameter name InclusiveNamespacePrefix seems odd because
it is in singular form yet clearly it communicates a list.  How about
<InclusiveNamespaces List="foo bar"/>

Finally, looks like the reference to XML DSig in the ref list needs
work.

Other than these, I didn't see any problems with the latest version.

Cheers,

Ok I beleive I've fixed the schema definition, and I also updated the 
section and references links.
