Thanks very much for several excellent, fast responses! Each one would fix the problem. I see now that I was putting some result elements out of namespace "scope."

Removing the xhtml namespace from the html element and putting it on the stylesheet element worked. I also found that removing the xhtml namespace from any element and having the following xsl:output element also got rid of the out-of-namespace xhtml elements:

<xsl:output method="xml"
            doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
            encoding="ISO-8859-1" />

Thanks again,
