Add namespace prefix using XSL

I wanted to know whether it would be possible to apply namespace prefix to all the nodes within a given xml?

For example I want to convert the following xml

<s:head xmlns:s="hello"><s:child1></s:child1></s:head>

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

one way to do this
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="" version="1.0" xmlns:s="hello">
    <xsl:template match="*">
        <xsl:element name="s:{local-name()}">
            <xsl:apply-templates select="node()"/>
