Are you trying to validate the XSLT stylesheet in XML Spy in the same
way you do with other XML documents? I suggest that you don't bother
doing that: checking an XSLT stylesheet's validity against a DTD or
schema will only point out some of the many errors that you might
make, so it's better to check the stylesheet by running it and seeing
what the XSLT processor tells you.

In this case, my guess would be that XML Spy's validator is picking up
on the namespace declaration and trying to validate the stylesheet
against the schema that it indicates, which is causing errors because
the stylesheet obviously isn't valid against that schema.

I can't see anything in your stylesheet that would cause problems
otherwise. Note that you should be using the src prefix when matching
the <dt_application> element, as in:

  <xsl:template match="src:dt_application" name="dtApplication">

and that if you want the generated <dt_application> element to be in
that namespace, you should probably copy it with <xsl:copy> rather
than creating a new one.
