IB4m having a real confusing problem and I hope anyone can help me;
IB4m using a system which takes valid XHTML input done by the user and
puts it out together with meta information and other stuff in a XML set.

The problem is that you do not understand namespaces. I'll leave it up to the guru's of this list to provide theoretical answers. I'll give this practical answer:

<xsl:template name="content_xhtml">
  <xsl:param name="content" select="/page/content/topic"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="$content/text/*" mode="put_in_new_namespace">
	<xsl:with-param name="new_namespace"></xsl:with-param>

<xsl:template match="*" mode="put_in_new_namespace" priority="1">
<xsl:param name="new_namespace"/>
<xsl:element name="{local-name()}" namespace="{$new_namespace}">
	<xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
	<xsl:apply-templates select="node()" mode="put_in_new_namespace">
		<xsl:with-param name="new_namespace" select="$new_namespace"/>

<xsl:template match="node()" mode="put_in_new_namespace">
	<xsl:copy-of select="."/>
