RE: [xsl] NAMESPACE_ERR when creating element with namespace

This is a known bug in Saxon 8.8: see

https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1558133&group_id=2
9872&atid=397617

A source patch is available in the Subversion repository, and a Jar file
that contains this patch and quite a few others is at
http://www.saxonica.com/download/patched/saxon-bj-8802.zip

I don't recommend this version unless you specifically need these patches,
because it hasn't been through full testing.

Saxon questions are best asked on the saxon-help mailing list or forum at
Sourceforge:
