RE: Transforming using DOMSource and DOMResult

I don't know why it's failing. You haven't supplied enough information.
I can only assume that your stylesheet A.xsl is incorrect, unless you
provide evidence to the contrary!

If you think it's a bug in the XSLT processor then (a) it would be
interesting to know which XSLT processor you are using, and (b) it would
be interesting to know whether other JAXP-compliant processors produce a
different result.

Generally it is not a good idea to supply the JAXP input as a DOMSource
unless you have a particularly good reason for using DOM (that is, if
you want to use DOM APIs to access the data). If the input is a raw XML
document (characters or bytes) then it's best to supply it as a
StreamSource, which gives the XSLT processor maximum freedom to build
the tree representation any way it likes. If you are going to use the
result object as the source of another transformation then it's probably
best, in general, to use SAX to connect the two transformations.
