get rid of xmlns
If the namespaces came from the stylesheet, use exclude-result-prefixes="w v
o" etc to avoid them finding their way into the result document.

If the namespaces came from the source document, use <xsl:element
name="{local-name()}" namespace="{namespace-uri()}"> in preference to
xsl:copy or xsl:copy-of. In XSLT 2.0 you can use xsl:copy-of select="XXX"
copy-namespaces="no" to copy an element except for any unused namespace
