as shown you can force the declaration of the prefix on the top level
element by sticking a att::foo attribute there, or as Michael showed,
making an attribute in a temporary node set variable using
exslt:node-set which xalan (not xerces, which is an xml parser) does
support, and then copying the namespace node.

        <!ENTITY NBSP    "<xsl:text
        disable-output-escaping='yes'>&amp;nbsp;</xsl:text>" >

eek never use d-o-e unless you really need to, and even then don't do it
unless you really really need to. here you coukld just use &#160;
instead of &NBSP; and make the stylesheet a lot more portable and

    <xsl:template match="/dap:Dataset">

        <rdf:RDF  xml:base="{$XML_BASE}" >


here is where you can add the namespace declation for your att prefix.
Note however that I think that xml:base declaration is in error as
xml:base as well as being an attribute to be copied to the output is an
xml:base attribute which affects the xml parsing of the stylesheet
and "{$XML_BASE} isn't a valid URI, and even if it were, it isn't th
ebase yu want to use (eg as base URI for any uses of document() )
safer to do
  <xsl:attribute name="xml:base"><xsl:alue-of

so it's added to the result without affecting the stylesheet.
