] You were right. There was an xmlns in my xhtml input and Iam
] surprised nobody saw it because it was there in the xhtml snippet I posted
] yesterday.

we needed to know if there was (or was not) one on the top level
element. Your latest posting shows that there is not one.

] <html>
]   <head>
]   </head>
]   <body>
]     <p>
]       <table>
]        <tr>

so these are html elements in no-namespace.
A template such as  match="p" would match these elements

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

here you change to the namespace urn:hl7-org/v3 

]          <td>
The namespace urn:hl7-org/v3 is still in effect here so this is not td in
no-namespace but is td in the namespace urn:hl7-org/v3 
match="td" will therefore _not_ match this element.
You could use
match="v3:td" xmlns:v3="urn:hl7-org/v3 "
but most likely to intend this td element to be in the same namespace
as the surrounding <table> in which case your input is in error and you
need <td xmlns="">
