There are several different kind of XML file in the configuration of an EPrints repository.
These files tend to use three XML namespaces.
- Their own specific namespace
- The EPC namespace.
- The XHTML namespace.
The default namespace is sometimes set to be XHTML, rather than their own. This is because we think it looks really odd having XHTML elements with a namespace. eg. <xhtml:a href="http://totl.net"><xhtml:img src="fish.jpg" /></xhtml:a> ... looks wrong!
