I believe that what you need to do is add the following string to your <xsl:stylesheet> element.
exclude-result-prefixes="fn xdt xs xlink ead

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="" xmlns:ead="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9"
="" xmlns="" xmlns:fn=""
="" xmlns:xlink="">



Here is the resulting HTML element:  


<html xmlns:fn="" xmlns:xdt="" xmlns="" xmlns:xs="" xmlns: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?
