Woah, that's a big difference.

I just went through my XSL and change all my <element> tags into Literal
Result Elements (LRE). This namespace thing is tricky. Thanks!

The difference is that the literal result element <table> copies all the
namespaces declared in the stylesheet, <xsl:element> doesn't.

You can only ask a question like that in relation to a specific XSLT
implementation. In principle with an LRE more of the decisions can be made
at compile time. However, it's quite tricky for an implementation to avoid
the cost with an LRE of generating all the namespaces and then eliminating
them because they are duplicates. The only way to find out is to measure it.
