getting ripped off idiom
Hi George,

Thanks for looking into it and remembering. I looked through the thread, and what I understand from it, is that it's basically the same approach I am using. Meaning, that I should feel confident with the current solution as being the right one to use. A copy of my last attempt, leaving out comment nodes and processing instructions:

<xsl:template match="@*" >
<xsl:copy /> </xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="*" >
<xsl:element name="{local-name()}" namespace="{$target-namespace}">
<xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()" />

In short, I could conclude that it is not possible to make a template only for namespace nodes and change the result tree namespace when you encounter an input namespace. Use for-each can be used for getting all namespace nodes. Using the above, can be used to create elements that are ripped off of any namespace information, and receive a new namespace instead. Looking again at the above, it doesn't look that hard anymore now... ;)

Hi Abel,

Have a look at the following thread from a couple of weeks ago
There you can see a stylesheet that changes namespaces and element and attribute names.
