Description Michael Rys 2005-05-19 20:08:05 UTC
This is a newer function that has not the right signature. Since the node is 
often calculated by means of a path expression, we should allow empty:

11.1.1 fn:resolve-QName
fn:resolve-QName($qname as xs:string?, $element as element()?) as xs:QName?


If the $qname has a prefix and if there is no namespace binding for $element 
that matches this prefix or $element is the empty sequence, then an error is 
raised [err:FONS0004].
