You could use an xslt2 implementation, xslt2 has an xhtml output method
that does these "compatibility" hacks. Probably the stylesheet would
need a bit of customisation so that the templates using xslt1 extensions
for such things as multiple file output had options for using the xslt2
equivalents, but I wouldn't expect that many changes were needed.

But I agree with what others have said, if you are sending the files to
a legacy html browser, just using the html output method is the safest
course of action.
