don't use "tag" unless you mean to refer to tags (which is almost never
in an XSLT context)

priority can't be used to override import precedence, so you don't want
to give your default template in your top level file as then it will
have highest import precedence.

Either use xsl:include instead of xsl:import (then you can use priority
to control which matches win) or put your template in a stylehseet of
its own, and import this _last_ into your top level template so it has
lower import precednce than everything else.

As I mentioned that will only work if your input uses the xhtml
namespace forthese elements. The XML Namespace system was designed for
exactly this use, so that you can easily refer to all related elements
with a single instruction, but if all your input is in no-namespace
then obviously you can not use the xhtml namespace to refer to the
elements that you want to copy.
