I'm using Saxon-B 8.7.1 from the command line to output XHTML. In
some tags, not others, the namespace gets reset to nothing with
xmlns="". The <p> tag at the end of the XHTML below is an example.
The part of the stylesheet that creates these elements is after the XHTML.

XHTML output:
(XHTML namespace set up here on html element)
   <h1>Bgp Object</h1>
      <a href="object-index.htm">Back to Object Index</a>
      <b>Description: </b>
   <p xmlns="">Defines the characteristics...</p>  <<<<----RESETS NAMESPACE

<p><b>Description: </b></p>
<xsl:apply-templates select="doctag_object/description" mode="multi-descr" />

<xsl:template match="description" mode="multi-descr">
     <p><xsl:apply-templates /></p>

Any idea what causes this? I confess that I am using a XSLT 1.0
stylesheet that uses an XSLT 2.0 element: (it works).

You are outputting unprefixed literal result elements in no namespace - you need to put them in the XHTML namespace either by prefixing them <xhtml:p> or by putting all LREs in the XHTML namespace by making it the default namespace.
