Default Working with non-Default namespace Elements/Attrib

Hello, I am having no luck retrieving attribute values defined against non-default namespaces. As a specific example, I cannot retrieve the value of xsi:type as defined in the ownedMember element below:

<ownedMember name="ACE Actors" publish:modelname="(II) Organizational View" publish:qualifiedname="(II) Organizational View::ACE Actors" publish:toplevelguid="" xmi:id="_CWKPgF-dEduzD7dnHHUv4w" xsi:type="uml:Package">

All namespaces represented in the element above have been declared in my xsl file, but I must be retrieving wrong. Why is the following always returning the correct value:

<xsl:value-of select="@name"/>

but the following always returns nothing:

<xsl:value-of select="@xsi:type"/>

have also tried without success:

<xsl:value-of select="@type"/>


Any insights are greatly appreciated. Thank you

Are you absolutely sure you've declared the mapping for xsi correctly? Should be 'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance', don't forget it's case-sensitive.

You say that you've declared all the required namespaces, but you provide no evidence of it; the fact that you're not retrieving the attribute suggests strongly that you have declared the xsi prefix but have bound it to the wrong URI.

Thank you! I did indeed have an error in my declaration. I double-checked, corrected it, and now it works as expected. Thanks :D
