You need to stop XML Spy from trying to validate your stylesheet against a
schema. I don't know the product well enough to know why it is trying to do
this, but it's this that is causing the trouble. 

After adding the namespace declaration to your stylesheet, you need to refer
to the dt_application element as src:dt_application.
