Element e = new Element("template", "xsl");

i tried that thinking it might work.. im not sure i understand the
parameters being passed to the Element object

The name "xsl:stylesheet" is not legal for JDOM/XML elements: : is 
not allowed in XML names.. org.jdom.IllegalNameException: The name 
"xsl:stylesheet" is not legal for JDOM/XML elements: : is not allowed

You need to create a Namespace object for the xsl namespace. For example,

Element e = new Element("stylesheet", "xsl",

We should clean up the error message to make this more obvious.
