Re: XProc step fails to execute two <xsl> statements. Why?

Hi Mark,

They both work, but:
- the xsl:strip-space refers to the source, not to the output
http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt-21/#element-strip-space

- the p:xslt result is read by the p:store step (thus you loose the 
DOCTYPE declaration as that is not part of the data model) and it is 
serialized at the provided location. To specify a DOCTYPE you should use 
the doctype-public and doctype-system options on the p:store step:

<p:store doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Hope this help!

Best Regards,
George
