A namespace is not an attribute. Rather than this do the following:

Specify the namespace-uri in the "namespace" attribute of xsl:element

If you have declared this namespace and bound the "myns" prefix to it (e.g.
on the xsl:stylesheet instruction), chances are that the XSLT processor may
use the same prefix.

Also, if the name of the element is statically known, you can simply write:

   <myElement xmlns:myns="my:myURI"/>
