XSLT 1.1 working draft: output

From: (wrong string) åldal <mikael@ingen.reklam.staldal.nu>
Date: Tue, 26 Dec 2000 13:00:15 +0100

Message-ID: <PhIS6MBsqfcR092yn@ingen.reklam.staldal.nu>
I would like to have an additional output method, "xhtml", that
produces well-formed XML following the relevant guidelines in appendix
C of the XHTML specification (that should be C2, C5 and C9).

The definition of the omit-xml-declaration attribute is a bit
misleading. It doesn't capture the fact that the attribute tells when
to NOT include the XML declaration.

Shouldn't the default version for HTML be 4.01, rather than 4.0?

In the paragraph about outputting an <META> element in HTML, it should
state that the actual media type is to be used (if it's changed to
something other than "text/html" with the media-type attribute).

Why are attribute value templates allowed in the attributes to
<xsl:output>? You say it's for consistency with the new <xsl:document>,
but then one may ask why AVTs are allowed in the attributes to
<xsl:document>. You could allow AVT only in the href attribute to
<xsl:document>. I think that allowing AVTs here makes some
implementations more complicated, especially if you want to have
transformation and serialization in different components.
