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

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. Michael Kay
