Hi ken,
thank you for replying.
I did try <xsl:copy-of select="xalan:nodeset($dummy)/*/namespace::p"/>.
But the situation remains the same. No namespace created. I have tried both with xalan 2.6.0 and saxon 8. The result is the same: only <p:a/>, without namespace declaration.
any other tips are welcome.

Should anyone knows how to add a namespace to a node?
i have tried the following approach:
first, i create a dummy attribute;
<xsl:variable name="dummy">
 <xsl:element name="p:a" namespace=""/>
From an xml node <a>, i write the following instruction:
<a><xsl:copy-of select="xalan:nodeset($dummy)/*/namespace::*[2]"/><a>
but, as a result tree i have got only the <a/> element without namespace,

Perhaps because you are addressing the namespace by its position, which is processor dependent ... you cannot rely on the order of namespace nodes. This is something my students find hard to understand: there *is* an order, just that the stylesheet writer cannot rely on what the order is.

Did you try:

<xsl:copy-of select="xalan:nodeset($dummy)/*/namespace::p"/>

I think it would be cleaner if you had in your stylesheet:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:p="";>

then you could do:

<xsl:copy-of select="document('')/*/namespace::p"/>

I hope this helps.
