Thanks Mike for the clarification. I have 2 more questions..

1st question:

You earlier gave suggestion, that comparing the namespace-uri()
instead of name() will make the stylesheet (George's code) compatible
with both Saxon and MSXML. (for supressing the namespace
xmlns:xml="http://www.w3.org/xml/1998/namespace" in output)

The relevant portion of code is (please see the code that George posted):

<xsl:for-each select="current()//namespace::*[not(.=$currentNamepsace)
and not(name()='xml')]">
    <xsl:attribute name="{translate(name(), $small,
$caps)}:dummy{position()}" namespace="{translate(., $small,

I changed this to:

<xsl:for-each select="current()//namespace::*[not(starts-with(.,'http://www.w3.org'))]">
   <xsl:attribute name="{translate(name(), $small,
$caps)}:dummy{position()}" namespace="{translate(., $small,

This works..

But following doesn't work (the namespace
http://www.w3.org/xml/1998/namespace is getting generated in the

<xsl:for-each select="current()//namespace::*[not(. =

(Please note the namespace uri comparison I am doing). What is wrong
with the string comparison here?

I am using Saxon 8.7.3.

2nd question:

Why at all the namespace, http://www.w3.org/xml/1998/namespace is part
of node-set namespace::*. I am not sure, but does it relate to the XML
Namespaces spec? (you hinted this in your previous answers)

It looks like a non-conformance to me: Erratum E25 at
http://www.w3.org/1999/11/REC-xslt-19991116-errata/ specifies the behaviour
of xsl:copy and xsl:copy-of when applied to namespace nodes.
