Subject: Re: [xsl] xsl:element will not create an output element, in any context|

However, using elements:
<xsl:element name="xhtml:ul"> ... </xsl:element>
Produces '<xhtml:ul>...</xhtml:ul>' in the output XML.
which (assuming you have the right namespace bound to xhtml:) is the same thing, and it will render correctly in a system that is rendering xhtml (eg firefox or opera, if you are serving it as application/xhtml+xml) However it isn't DTD-valid (because DTD don't know about namespaces) and it won't render on a system like IE which knows nothing about XHTML and just renders the file as HTML by ignoring small syntactic differences like /> empty element syntax, but falling over large syntactic differences like prefixes.
