[xsl] How to get XSL style sheet to ignore a setting in an XML file

Subject: [xsl] How to get XSL style sheet to ignore a setting in an XML file

First line of my XML file has the following information in it.

<payment_data xmlns="http://com/exlibris/repository/acq/invoice/xmlbeans"; 

Style sheet will not process the xsl conversion logic until I remove the 
following from the the above line in my XML file

This is logic at very top of my style sheet

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" 
        exclude-result-prefixes="xs xdt err fn"

        <xsl:output method="text" indent="no"/>
1)  How do I ask the style sheet to ignore the "xmlns="?
2)  Is there a way to remove it if it is in there?
3)  Might be able to ask company to remove it?

As soon as I copy the XML to new file name and remove that section of code 
then the file gets converted by the style sheet.

Has anyone encountered this problem before?
