sxml:ncname nodeprocedure

Like sxml:name, except returns only the local part of the name (called an "NCName" in the XML namespaces spec).

The node's name is interpreted as a "Qualified Name", a colon-separated name of which the last one is considered to be the local part. If the name contains no colons, the name itself is returned.

Important: Please note that while an SXML name is a symbol, this function returns a string.
