Subject: why do user templates generate empty xmlns attributes?

When on the advice of Bob Stayton's last email
 I  created a custom template for my customization layer , I notice
something strange.

</head><body><p xmlns=""><b>Hi Mom!</b></p><div class="chapter"
title="Would Kafka have kept a weblog?"><div
class="titlepage"><div><div><h1 class="title"><a
xmlns:saxon="http://icl.com/saxon"; id="nt001"/>Would Kafka have kept a
weblog? </h1></div></div></div>

Two questions:

1)why does <p xmlns=""> show an empty value. (That actually makes the
code invalid and the resulting .epub invalid as well).

2)what is going on here:  <a xmlns:saxon="http://icl.com/saxon";> Why
is this namespace value there in the first place?

I notice that these kinds of weirdness/errors pop up all the time
whenever I try to put an xsl:template statement in my customization
layer file.  I could live with the second error, but not the first.
Any idea what is causing this to happen?

My customization layer is pretty vanilla. It's for epub/chunked html output.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"; version="1.0">
    <xsl:param name="epub.metainf.dir">META-INF/</xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="epub.oebps.dir">OEBPS/</xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="use.id.as.filename">1</xsl:param>
        <xsl:param name="html.stylesheet">first.css</xsl:param>
<!--<xsl:param name="show.comments">1</xsl:param>-->
    <xsl:param name="label.from.part" select="0"></xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="chapter.autolabel">0</xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="part.autolabel">0</xsl:param>
    <xsl:param name="img.src.path">images/</xsl:param>
    <xsl:template name="user.header.content">
        <p><b>Hi Mom!</b></p>
