A Follow up:

I replaced my XSLT processor with Saxon 6.5.5 (I know, I know, I should get the spiffy XSLT 2.0 machine that is but I have been instructed to keep it in an XSLT 1.0 thing) and all of your various suggestions started to work. (Nice!)

Then I went and got the latest Xalan (2.7.1 from and tried it. Right back to the same issues. (Not so nice.)

So it looks like there is a difference in how these two implementations of XSLT 1.0 process namespace prefixes.

As an aside: Are there other implementations of XSLT 2.0 besides Saxon?? I think if I could show my group that there is more than one implementation they might be persuaded to use XSLT 2.0
