Parse doesn't happen with xmlns in xml file

I'm working with FileMaker and Xtags currently, and all seems to be going well except I have a problem.
FileMaker exports the xml starting with :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<FMPDSORESULT xmlns="http://www.filemaker.com/fmpdsoresult">
But if I don't remove :
Nothing happens for output, but if it is removed everything works fine. I was using the crimson parser but I changed to xerces to see if that would work but no change.
Any ideas?

Here's something which matches my problem, but this is a XLST conversion, but might jog someones mind.
I think this behaviour is caused by two things.
You're seeing the contents of the ERRORCODE, DATABASE and LAYOUT nodes
because the apply-templates in your FMPDSORESULT template results in these
nodes being matched by the default rule. You need a rule to override the
default rule which does nothing, like
<xsl:template match="node()" />
Then, the namespace problem is a FAQ. What you're seeing is that both the
FMPDSORESULT node and the ROW nodes are being matched *not* by your template
but by the default rule and their content therefore being 'dumped' (the
default behaviour).
Why is your FMPDSORESULT template not being used? It's because XPath
expressions match the null namespace not the default namespace. Try adding a
namespace declaration to your stylesheet
(xmlns:fmpro="http://www.filemaker.com/fmpdsoresult" and then changing your
template so that you have
You'll probably also want to include "fmpro" in your stylesheet's
exclude-result-prefixes attribute.
