Thank you.
Yes, I'm using Saxon, hence using 2.0.
Yes, this is called from xsl:copy, to which I've added attribute

I've removed the xmlns:mytest from the xsl:stylesheet.

I now have only the one template :
match="@*[local-name()='noNamespaceSchemaLocation']" />

And the xmlns:xsi and xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation are now both being

Seems I may need to read up a bit more on namespaces.  Doesn't seem too
intuitive to me.....
