RE: retaining "xml:" prefix on attribute name

xml prefix
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.
