Bill,
You need to do the following:
<xsl:stylesheet
version
="2.0"
xmlns:xsl
="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
xmlns:ead
="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9"
xmlns:xs
="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-functions"
xmlns:xdt
="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-datatypes"
xmlns:xlink
="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
exclude-result-prefixes="ead fn xdt xlink xs"
>


Add the @exclude-result-prefixes to your xsl:stylesheet element.

For individual elements, there is some other tricks.

Subject: EAD 2 XHTML

I am attempting to transform EAD to XHTML.  My XSL stylesheet <xsl:stylesheet> element has several namespaces which get output as attribute to the opening <html> element. 

 

Here is my opening stylesheet element:

 

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:ead="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9"
            xmlns:xs
="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-functions"
            xmlns:xdt
="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-datatypes" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">

 

 

Here is the resulting HTML element:  

 

<html xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-functions" xmlns:xdt="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-datatypes" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xmlns:ead="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9">

 

 

Here is my <xsl:output> element:

 

 

Of course, these namespace attributes are not valid for the <html> element, but are required for <xsl:stylesheet>.

 

How do I resolve this problem?
