[xquery-talk] namespace declarations in an element

Hi Leo,

In XQuery 3.0 you have namespace node constructors which might be what you are looking for.

Or you can also simply build the elements a:test, b:test, c:test just like the root element and let the serializer do the job, but the namespace declarations might not end up at the same place in the output document.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
