[xsl] copying xmlns: attribute

      Got this far by myself.

         Iam using the following code to copy an element along with its
attibutes to the result tree from a context node which is elsewhere in the
document. The context node is in fact the root element. However, the xmlns:
attribute is not getting copied.

   <xsl:template match="/">
     <xsl:for-each select="//root/*[1]">
     <xsl:variable name="rootnode" select="name(.)"/>
     <xsl:element name="{$rootnode}">
     <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
     <xsl:apply-templates select="/" mode="inside">
          <xsl:with-param name="rootnode" select="$rootnode"/>


I have used xsl:copy-of select="@*" earlier and I know that it copies
xmlns: attributes.
Also, in the inner call to apply-templates, I have to select "/" once again
with a different mode as otherise only one node is getting copied if I use

My xhtml snippet is as follows:

<slideshow xmlns="urn:hl7-org/v3" title="Sample Slide Show" date="Date of
publication" author="Yours Truly">
<td><a href="file:///">



Hoping to get a quick reply.
