Tracey ZellmannSubject: DOCTYPE public and system info runs together
Author: Tracey Zellmann

I am having a problem with DOCTYPE. As an example, I want to create a HTML 4.01 Transitional page. I establish the stylesheet with this statement
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

Then I use this statement to create the DOCTYPE
<xsl:output doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" doctype-system="http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd" method="html" indent="yes" encoding="ISO-8859-1" media-type="text/html"/>

The actual page generated then has this DOCTYPE
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN""http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

The problem is that the two quoted fields are run together. Although the pages render successfully, they fail validation.

I am using a fairly straight-forward java program using the standard material in JDK 1.5. I find that I can solve the problem by going to XSLT 2.0 and using the saxon8.jar for the transformer. For a variety of reasons, I would like to avoid that.

How can I get this to work successfully?

We see you also asked and found an answer on XSL-LIST at

The Xalan embedded in JDK 5 has shown a few difficulties; we hope
you can work around it. Although the one in JDK 6 is better, it
is still based on an older version of Xalan than is available
directly from Apache.
