Hello,

How do I make xsltproc preserve the DTD that is in the input XML ?


Unless it has a non-standard extension (which I don't recall is the case) then this is not possible. Standard XSLT can not do this as the DTD is expanded out by the XML parser and not reported to XSLT which just sees a tree of element text and attribute nodes.

Couldn't the XSLT re-read the source document as text, using the document() function, and recover the DTD section with string manipulation?
