When the obvious thing doesn't work, the time has come to read the spec.

You can match all elements in a namespace by writing


or by

<xsl:template match="xhtml:*"

Note that this doesn't require the elements in the source document to
use the same prefix.

Whether <xsl:copy-of> is really what you want to do inside the template
rather depends on details of the requirement, which you haven't
explained very fully.
