Hi Roman,

the namespace prefix "evt" refers to the draft "XHTML Events". A
revision of that draft is in preparation, but I'm not familiar with
details. There will be a URL (namespace name) given for that prefix in
the XHTML Events specification. Please be patient, that's all I can say
for now.

Generally speaking, it is not OK to ommit namespace prefixes. Most XML
standards nowadays do name matching based on the extended name, in other
words: based on the pair (namespace name; local name). 

(example: (http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink; href).

The actual prefix is only of minor importance, it serves only as a
marker which namespace name aka namespace URI to attach to the given
local name.

Hope this helps,


P.S.: I agree with Jim, sending HTML formatted messages is already
unusual for W3C mailing lists, but the huge advertising banners are

Subject: evt namespace

According to point " alert" their is a namespace mentioned
called "evt:", but how do I have to implement it in my XForms document?
Is there a certain URL or something like that?
Can you please give me a hint on this topic?
How would the following example look like? 
<xform:button style="margin-left: 118px; width: 150px; color:white;
font-size:12pt; font-weight:bold; background-color:#0000A0;">
    <xform:hint>Drücken sie "Reset", um die Anmeldung zu
    <xform:action evt:event="dom-activate">
Would it be ok to omitt the namespaceprefix for the "event"- attribute?
