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

No, I'm sorry, but you haven't. A namespace is not an attribute, and an
attribute is not allowed to have the name "xmlns". The spec says explicitly
(section 7.1.3) "It is an error if the [name attribute] is the string
"xmlns". If your XSLT processor accepts this stylesheet, then it has a bug
in it.

Ok. :-( I removed it. It remains XHTMl then.
