> Do I need to declare the XHTML namespace + my source XML's namespace?
technically the answer to the question is "no" as it's possible to write a stylesheet that doesn't declare either namespace and still transforms your input document to XHTML, but practically speaking the answer is "yes".
Declare XHTML namespace to be the default namespace in your stylesheet then you can use literal elements such as <p> to generate an xhtml p element.
Declare your source namespace to be on some prefix eg f: and use f:abc whenever refering to elements in that namespace.
