Ok, I think changing it would be better after the second revision
of ECMA is released ... Hopefully the second version should clear
up other quirks like the Read() thing Adam was talking about ...

A String containing the corresponding prefix, or System.String.Empty if 
the prefix is not found and ns is the default namespace, or null
if no matching namespace URI is found in the current scope.


is what I found in ECMA ... which means XmlTextWriter.LookupPrefix needs
to check for default namespace as well ? ... Anyway so the code now stands
as above with the Empty checks , so that we can get away with reference
comparisons for the return values ...

But I'm not the Xml guy around here, so I am not sure ... Adam , if you 
see any problem with this, please check out the fix.
