   RE: [xml-dev] Namespaces, schemas and stylesheets

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It's not easy in XSLT 1.0 to create a namespace node on an element if
the namespace isn't actually used in the element name or an attribute
name. But it can be done, by using xsl:copy to copy the namespace node
from elsewhere.

So you can do:

<xsl:variable name="dummy">
<xsl:element name="d" namespace="{@Namespace}"/>


<xsl:copy select="xx:node-set($dummy)//namespace::*"/>

In XSLT 2.0 this is easier, you can do

<xsl:namespace name=""><xsl:value-of

This is available in Saxon 7.4
