First thing to understand is that the XML declaration is not a processing
instruction (if you get the terminology right, Google is more likely to find
the answer for you...)

Too true, thanks!

Try adding omit-xml-declaration="yes" to xsl:output.

Works like a charm, thanks!

If you don't want the div element to be in the namespace, then you must change the code that
puts it in that namespace (the namespace declaration will then disappear).
The way to do this depends on whether the div element was constructed as a
literal result element, by using xsl:element, or by using

At present this is the template that creates the div:

 <xsl:template match="/">
   <div class="menuBar">
     <xsl:apply-templates select="(key('elem-by-oid',$objectID))"/>
