xhtml DOCTYPE problem

doctype problem
I have a simple xhtml document:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM "xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <title>my title</title>

Following template only outputs an emptye <test/>:

<xsl:template match="/">
	<xsl:value-of select="html/head/title"/>

If I remove the DOCTYPE and the xmlns:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
    <title>my title</title>

I get what I expect: <test>my title</test>

Can anybody explain this to me?

-I tried this with both xalan and saxon
-I had to change the DOCTYPE to SYSTEM and store the dtd locally, otherwise
the xslt-processor cannot find it.
