Hi Mike,
         Iam taking the text of an element in the input file and making it
into an element. The element in question is named 'slideshow' and it
doesn't have a prefix. You say
"the processor may put the element in the default namespace, or it may
invent a prefix"
Does this mean the processor Iam using (xalan) is adding the prefix whereas
another processor may not.

Iam not tied to any processor and I may opt for another processor if this
is the case other things permitting.

Also you suggested a workaround using xsl:copy-of in your earlier mail.
Will this prevent the prefixes from getting added.

Also, I would like to know how to add another namespace say for eg the
schema namespace to an element created in the default namespace.

You haven't said what the value of $elemname is. If it includes a prefix,
then most XSLT 1.0 processors will attempt to use that prefix, thought they
aren't obliged to do so. If it doesn't include a prefix, then the processor
may put the element in the default namespace, or it may invent a prefix.
