xml to xml identity transforms, and reading the DTD
Can I raise an issue in near-identity transforms? When I write a cleanup script in XSL, the XML/XSLT processor reads my document and the DTD, and outputs values for attributes which are defaulted in the DTD. For example, an ATTLIST for a element contains org (composite | uniform) "uniform" so my XML output has "org='uniform'" every time the element occurs. Quite right too, thats what the DTD says. But it is very irritating in practice. You will say "remove the DOCTYPE", but thats a bore. And I might need a DTD subset. So the question is, do any of the XML parsers which I might plug in to (say) Saxon support this minimal level of DTD reading, in which default values are NOT applied?
