Thanks. Now I understand what you're asking, and I maintain it isn't 
necessary. What you're trying to do is convert elements in namespace 
A to different elements in namespace B that have the same local 
names. It's not obvious, but it can be done in XSLT 1.0 using the 
xsl:element function and attribute value templates.

You are using this template:

<xsl:template match="*">
   <xsl:copy-of select="."/>

Instead you need to use something like this template:

<xsl:template match="*">
   <xsl:element name="{name(.)}" namespace="http://www.xhtml">

This is all completely doable within standard XSLT 1.0. I just tested 
it with SAXON 6.4.3 and it worked.
