Hi Thimothy,

There is nothing special about the xsi:schemaLocation attribute in XSLT. 
You can copy that to the output as you copy any other attribute. For 
instance the following stylesheet that contains only the recursive copy 
template applied on itself passes through the xsi:schemaLocation 
attribute defined on the stylesheet element:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" 
     xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform xslt.xsd">

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