RE: retaining "xml:" prefix on attribute name
I'm puzzled as to why you should want an xml:lang attribute in HTML output, since it's not legal HTML. The serialization spec says that the HTML output method should output namespaced elements as if they were XML, but it says nothing about namespaced attributes on non-namespaced elements. So I guess your XSLT processor is within its rights to drop the prefix, though it seems an odd decision to me.
