Namespace ns = Namespace.get("xsl", " http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/XSLT
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/XSLT> ");
Element e1 = new Element("template", ns);
Element e2 = new Element("item1", ns);
<etc... />
The interface for creating Elements is fully specified in the Javadoc for
the class.  Try that first.

how would i go about building up other elements for the xsl doc? 

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

for those not understanding this ... i get the following error when i

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 
in XML names.. 

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

Element e = new Element("stylesheet", "xsl", "
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/XSLT <http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/XSLT> "); 

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