xsl xml to xml
Hello everyone,

I am doing XML to XML conversion using XSLT.  In the
newly transformed XML I need to include some entity
declarations.  Something along these lines:

<!DOCTYPE info SYSTEM "my.dtd"
<!ENTITY % images.ent SYSTEM "images.ent">

Couple of questions:
1.  Is there a way for me to figure out via XSL or
perhaps the Xalan/Xerces to find out if the source XML
has any existing declarations?

2. Is there a xslt element/function that will allow me
to assign the entity files to the new XML?  I know I
can do something like <xsl:output
doctype-system="my.dtd"/>.  But 2 questions with that
route: a. How do I get the "info" attribute from my
code snippet above? b. How do I include the entity
file(s) with this option?

I know I can do it using <xsl:text
disable-output-escaping> and then just writing the
whole declaration myself.  Is that a good way to do
