Hi all, 

I'm trying to add a namespace declaration to an element as I am copying it:
   <xsl:template match="esbd:Record">
         <xsl:attribute name="xmlns"

The DTD specifies this attribute for this element and it's parent, the
attribute declaration is a fixed value. I have also added the namespace
declarations to the xsl:stylesheet element.

I get: "Invalid attribute name: xmlns" from Saxon 6.22.

I have just read that the system will determine where to put namespaces in
the output and I cannot output xmlns attribute. If I have got this right,
then it will not output a namespace on the child of an element with the same

My XML is a set of records contained in a record set tag, we need to split
it into a series of records each with their own namespace declaration as
well as doing some transformation. Do I need a separate (SAX) process to add
in the namespaces on the child records?
