If you add the offending namespace specification from your XML file to your
XSL file (instead of removing it from the XML), it will likely effect what
you want.  In the XML document, it is binding the default namespace to  "
http://com/exlibris/repository/acq/invoice/xmlbeans";.  If you make the
stylesheet aware of that, it will likely work as intended.
