RE: Removing namespace attributes

remove namespaces using xslt
exclude-result-prefixes only affects the namespaces created using literal
result elements. It has no effect on namespaces copied from the source
document using xsl:copy or xsl:copy-of.

XSLT 2.0 provides a copy-namespaces=yes|no attribute on these instructions.
In 1.0 you have to switch from using xsl:copy to using an modified-identity
template with xsl:element name="{local-name()}".

Rather than this:

<xsl:template match="@* | node()">
>      <xsl:if test="name()!='xlink:href'">
>        <xsl:copy>
>          <xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()" />
>        </xsl:copy>
>      </xsl:if>
>    </xsl:template>

it's much cleaner to do this:

<xsl:template match="@* | node()">
          <xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()" />

<xsl:template match="@xlink:href"/>

Apart from anything else, it doesn't depend on the document author's choice
of namespace prefix.
