Saxon and Sun Serializer problems?

Saxon and Sun Serializer problems?

Hi Folks


I am using saxonb9-1-0-2j


When I serialize through a sax pipeline which is handling ContentHandler and LexicalHandler events and I run through a saxon XSLT transformer, my DOCTYPE dissapears unless I use the the saxon serializer.  When I run through a sax pipeline that just parses and serializes, my DOCTYPE dissapears unless I use the Sun provided serializer.


This causes problems for generalizing the code.




Here is my XSL and serializer setup code below:



**************** XSL

<xsl:stylesheet version='2.0' xmlns:xsl='http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform'>


   <!-- conrefTargets.xsl  

   Make the link target text for the navigation link targets.  This expects topic input.


   <xsl:output method="xml" encoding="UTF-8" />


   <xsl:param name='parm1' select="'Parm1 Default Value'"></xsl:param>



   <!-- Define a newline character -->

   <xsl:variable name='newline'>





   <xsl:variable name='topicId' select='/topic/@id'></xsl:variable>


   <!-- *********************************************************************************

     The outer target node list.

     ********************************************************************************* -->

<!--   <xsl:template match="*|@*|text()"> -->

   <xsl:template match='node()|@*'>


         <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/>




   <xsl:template match="p">


         <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/>


      <p class="- topic/p "><xref class="- topic/xref " href=""{$parm1}"" >Hello Link</xref></p>






//******************* SERIALIZER CODE


    private void init(Writer writer)




         TransformerFactory transFact = this.getTransformerFactory();

         SAXTransformerFactory saxTFactory = (SAXTransformerFactory) transFact;

         TransformerHandler serialT = saxTFactory.newTransformerHandler();

         Transformer t = serialT.getTransformer();

         t.setOutputProperty(OutputKeys.METHOD, "xml");  // always Xml

         StreamResult streamResult = new StreamResult(writer);



         // set the super pass through to point to here




      catch (TransformerConfigurationException ex)


         throw new SysException(ex);






     * Returns the Xml string from this serializer.

     * @return String xml.


    public String getXmlString()


       return m_charWriter.toString();




     * clear and reset this class so it can create a new Xml serialization

     * with a fresh set of incoming sax events.

     * WARNING!! This may be called after construction but before any SAX events.

     * You have passed this writer on contruction, so clear it, not its reference.

     * Thats why char writer was chosen.


    public void clear()





    private TransformerFactory getTransformerFactory()


       // TransformerFactory transFact = new net.sf.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl();

       TransformerFactory transFact = new TransformerFactoryImpl();  // gets the JDK internal one

       return transFact;
