[xsl] Namespace missing after transform

From: "Hofman, Peter" <peter.hofman@------------->

I have difficulties getting all necessary namespaces in the output while
performing XML to XML transformation.

The source document contains typed elements like this:

<elem xmlns:xsi=""

When I copy it using the following xsl template the xmlns:xs reference
is missing.


<xsl:template match="elem">
	<xsl:element name="elem">
		<xsl:attribute name="xsi:type"

			<xsl:value-of select="@xsi:type"/>
		<xsl:value-of select="."/>


<elem xmlns:xsi=""

Any ideas how to fix this?

Additional information:
XSL version: 1.0
XSLT processor: not sure, I think it is SAX based. Anyway, problem also
occurs with msxsl.exe (version 4.0).

Kind regards,

Peter Hofman
