Done ! Please find attached patches that (I hope finally) solve the XSP
namespace problems.

Here are the changes :
- check if we should declare namespaces as attributes. This depends on
the parser/xsl processor combination that's used : Xerces+Xalan require
it, while Xerces+Saxon do not (xmlns attributes are generated).

- moved top-level namespaces declaration from the "xsp:page" template to
the "process-first-element" template because we need namespace
information from that first element to avoid duplicate namespace

- after the previous change, the generate() method only contains a call
to generateContent(), so I merged both.

- added XML_NAMESPACE_URI for the xmlns namespace URI
used in namespaces attributes.

Could you please apply these patches ?
