Losing xml namespace attribute when using xmlNodeToDocument


I have an xml string with namespace declarations in the root tag:

When I send this through the services xmlStringToNode and xmlNodeToDocument to convert into a document the namesapce attribute xmlns:xsi = “http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance” is not listed as an atrribute in the document i.e. lost.

Looks something like this in Developer:

| @version 1.0
| @encoding UTF-8

Since the namespace declaration for xsi is missing the document does not
pass validation…

Greatful for any help in this matter…

We are using WM 6.1 on AIX 5.1.

best regards,

I am having the same problem as well.
