Hi Michael,

Interesting approach..  I will definitely check your suggestion out and get
back on this. This would indeed allow me to avoid constructing elements
manually.

I think I would do it like this:

<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:for-each select="//mycompany:object">
<xsl:result-document href="{concat($dir, mycompany:name)}">
<xsl:apply-templates select="/*">
<xsl:with-param name="object" select="." tunnel="yes"/>
</
</
</
</

     <xsl:template match="@* | node()">
       <xsl:copy>
         <xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>
         <xsl:apply-templates/>
       </
     </

     <xsl:template match="mycompany:object">
      <xsl:param name="object" tunnel="yes"/>
       <xsl:if test=". is $object">
         <xsl:next-match/>
       </
     </

hardcoding the namespace http://www.mycompany.com in my result tree.   Just
checking if this can be improved.  PS. The example is made up and simplified
but showing exactly what's needed.
