Greetings,

I tripped over xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/strict"
in http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt
used in the examples in section 2.3 (not stated as non-normative)
and appendix D.1 (non-normative):

<html xsl:version="1.0"
      xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
      xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/strict">

Reading the errata archive response
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xsl-editors/2004AprJun/0033
I understand that lack of future knowledge about draft xhtml
meant that at the time of publication there was no error,
but now it's misleading.

Because xslt1.0 is still a current(?) recommendation in use,
my vote is for a little in-place edit to change the namespace to
	http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml
so that it may prevent further whoopsies like mine.
