If you've written an <html> element in the XHTML namespace, and then copy
the <h2> element from the source as a child of this, then I would expect the
xmlns="" to appear. That's because the <h2> element is in no namespace. It
must stay in the same namespace (or non-namespace) when copied, and the only
way to keep it in the non-namespace is to add an xmlns="" declaration.

Thanks for this expensive tip. So I thought about it and removed a) the xmlns=""; in <xsl:stylesheet
and b) modified the <html> Tag like this:

<html lang="de" xml:lang="de">
<xsl:attribute name="xmlns"></xsl:attribute>

And see there: All default namespaces are gone (Perhaps I4ve finally understood namespaces ;-))

Big thanks to Michael and Joris and perhaps my solution helps other people on the net (there were a lot of sites with no solution)

So far,
