Hi Christopher,

Your expected output is not XML as the prefix foo is not bound.
If for instance foo points to the then the following stylesheet will do what you want:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";
<xsl:template match="node() | @*">
<xsl:apply-templates select="node() | @*"/>
<!-- matches elements -->
<xsl:template match="*">
<!-- creates an element with the same local name but in the foo namespace-->
<xsl:element name="foo:{local-name()}" namespace="";>
<xsl:apply-templates select="node() | @*"/>

I want to create a transform that takes an (X)HTML as an input and gives
back the unchanged but for the addition of a namespace prefix to each
element.  Input file might be as follows:

<p><b>Generalized foo here</b></p>
<li>Foo 1</li>
<li>Foo 2</li>
<p>Final foo</p>

Output might be as follows:

<foo:p><foo:b>Generalized foo here</foo:b></foo:p>
<foo:li>Foo 1</foo:li>
<foo:li>Foo 2</foo:li>
<foo:p>Final foo</foo:p>

My instinct say to use <xsl:copy-of> but I'm confused about how I might
add the prefix.  Thanks very much.
