It should just have the namespaces associated with the root element. You do have a root element, correct? Otherwise it's not valid xml and I'm not sure what would happen since you don't have an xsl:output. Someone who knows more about the various processors out there will have to tell you more about that. But in this case since that p is the only element, and hence the root element, it gets all the namespace declarations. It's working exactly as it should. Check out exclude-prefixes, although I believe this behaves differently on different implementations. <xsl:template match="text:p"> <p xsl:exclude-result-prefixes="office table style text draw fo xlink meta math dc number chart dr3d form script ooo ooow oooc svg dom xsd xsi xforms"> <xsl:value-of select="."/></p> </xsl:template> On the other hand, doing something similar to <xsl:template match="text:p"> <xsl:element name="p"> <xsl:value-of select="."/> </xsl:element> might work if I call correctly depending on the processor (xslt 1.0 vs xslt 1.0 backwards-compatible). Doing something with local-name also could do the trick. There should be plenty out there on this stuff if you just google/read the faqs. Also notice I cleaned up the match. XSLT default templates will travel down the input document's tree, so you don't need to have that long match. If you have other text, then you might want to modify the identity transform so that it suppresses text by default (see the faq on identity transform). Do you really need all those namespaces in the input anyhow? I know office adds a lot by default but I'd be really surprised to see a doc that uses more than three or four of those namespaces at the most. Jon Gorman
