[jdom-interest] Problem with getChild()

I have an xml document that begins like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<record xmlns="http://www.imsproject.org/metadata/">
    .... etc...

and I have the next code to read the children of <record> element:

Element root = doc.getRootElement();
List a = root.getChildren();
Iterator i = a.iterator();
while ( i.hasNext() )
    Element e = (Element) i.next();
    System.out.println("Children: " + e.getName());

This works well, and list "metadata", "general", etc... But when I try
to acces to one child:

   Element e = root.getChild("metametadata");

getChild returns a null pointer.
