#325 Roma: renaming an element nukes NS

Syd Bauman

Using current version of Roma, if I rename an element from its page (e.g., http://www.tei-c.org/Roma/startroma.php?mode=changeElement&element=abbr&module=core\), an empty ns= attribute is added to the <elementSpec>, thus generating a schema that has the element in question not only with a new local name (desired) but in no namespace (very bad).

This does *not* happen if I rename the element from the module tab (e.g., http://www.tei-c.org/Roma/startroma.php?mode=changeModule&module=core\)

So, to generate this problem:
* http://www.tei-c.org/Roma/
* Build schema; start
* save; Modules; core; abbr
* Change Name -> "abbreviation" ; save
* Save Customization
=> <elementSpec module="core" ident="abbr" mode="change" ns="">
* Schema =>
tei_abbr = element abbreviation {
where it should have
tei_abbr = element ns1:abbreviation {
