 [Jim Fuller] 

should just have to add the following template to your xslt;

  <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

this is related to what is known as the identity transform; read up on
this here

also would be useful to always have an example xml, in addition to your
xslt, and which xslt processor you are using, there are some slight
differences (not incompability) when it comes to explicitly printing out
an xmlns attribute on every element which may affect your understanding.

Happy new year, Jim Fuller
