i was expecting to get the same result as in output1. why is pat:bar apparently not the same as the xsl:element instruction above?

Actually, in namespace-aware XML, it is.

The difference in handling of prefixes between the two methods you've presented is:

* exploitable when writing "cosmetic cleanup" stylesheets
(which in theory are never needed, but in practice are often asked for)
