Namespaces in XML
i am declaring a namepace, but cascade seems to be stripping it
out, take a look at the attached file.
____________________________________________________ from the mailing list:
We are attempting to publish podcasts with Cascade and need to be able to use the ‘itunes’ namespace in the tags (e.g <itunes:name>) we’re getting an error “An error occurred: Error on line 6: The prefix "itunes" for element "itunes:subtitle" is not bound” and wondered if others had run into the same problem or if we’re just missing something.
We’re currently running Cascade 6.4
_________________________________________________ For the rendered page to be valid XML, this namespace prefix needs to be declared before being used. Usually this would be done at the top of the template used to output the page.
You can read more about declaring namespaces in the w3c
Feel free to post to our help.hannonhill.com with any additional questions.

I believe the namespace may be getting stripped since there aren't any elements using that namespace. Try to prefix one of the elements in your rss content with
<itunes:>and see if that works.

That did the trick.

looks like was a false alarm. i can use the itunes namespace in the template, but i can't use it in the velocity that i'm using to create the <item>...<item> sections or the velocity that is applied to the default region that creates the channel info.
i'm getting the same error "An error occurred: Error on line 7: The prefix "itunes" for element "itunes:subtitle" is not bound."

Please attach the relevant portions of your Velocity/XSLT format so we can look at it.

here are the files, included are the template, the default block's xml (it has a customized data definition) and the velocity i'm applying to it. if you remove the <itunes:XXXX> tags from the velocity it works just fine.

My apologies. We're still looking into the cause of this issue. As soon as we have some feedback I will be sure to let you know.
In the interim, please use the suggested workaround below.
Add NS declaration into the Velocity format where the namespace was used. I.e.:
Doing it this way:

Revisiting this issue...since individual regions are rendered as complete XML documents, the namespace will need to be declared in the Format (whether using Velocity or XSL) in order for this to work as expected.
Hope this helps!
