I can specify this element in my xslt template as:

     <xsl:element name="ACORD" namespace=""; >

but I can find no documentation on how to reproduce the second namespace
directive or the schema directive.

The xmlns:xsi declaration should be generated automatically when you do

 <xsl:attribute name="xsi:schemaLocation" 

The xmlns:Marsh one is more tricky: in XSLT 2.0 you've got
<xsl:namespace>, but in 1.0 the only way of generating a namespace node
that isn't actually used by the element or any of its attributes is to
copy the namespace node from somewhere. One way is to have a source

<dummy xmlns:Marsh=""/>

and then do <xsl:copy-of
