Hi David,
  The syntax --
    <xsl:template match ="elname">
       <xsl:element name="name()">

_gives error with Xalan_. I tested with latest version
2.5.1 . The error reported is 
"Illegal value: name() used for QNAME attribute: name"

But the syntax --	
<xsl:template match ="elname">
  <xsl:element name="{name()}">
works fine..

The syntax producing the error, is not allowed by the
XSLT grammer..

I believe the right syntax --
<xsl:template match ="elname">
  <xsl:element name="{name()}">
would work with Saxon also..
