Yes, I thought it was a bit odd that some DB stylesheets specifically need an old Saxon to work.  Perhaps the current work on 1.78.1 stylesheets could look at this.
(There is a comment at the top which says "Only Saxon 6.4.2 or later is supported" - if this issue is not fixed the comment should be amended to make it clearer that only Saxon 6.4.2 to 6.5.5 are supported, and not later !)

What would a straight change to result-document need doing with regard to the use of the test for element-available('saxon:output') ?  (presumably anything doing that could just be deleted)
And the saxon:character-representation parameter of saxon:output - how would that need changing, as it doesn't appear to map to a result-document parameter/attribute (as do all the other params) ?

Appreciatively, Richard.

PS. I'm reluctant to cross-post but this does now seem to be a docbook-specific issue....

It is.

db is not Saxon specific, it is 1.0 specific and works with most, of the commonly used 1.0 engines
