+Summary: SelectSingleNode does not work on nodes with default namespace
+Description of Problem:
+When some of the nodes in an XML document have a default namespace (i.e.,
+one defined using xmlns="..." without a prefix) using SelectSingleNode with
+an XPath including such nodes always results in a null return value. Using
+a XmlNamespaceManager with the right namespace URI added with an empty
+prefix (resulting in a default namespace in the XmlNamespaceManager) does
+not improve the situation.
+I have attached to this report an example program that tries to locate
+"/html/head" in a very simple XHTML document that uses the default XHTML
+namespace as its default namespace. Both versions of the SelectSingleNode
+call fail. By removing the xmlns declaration from the XML the text program
+works as expected.
