It would be helpful if xsl:output had some option to copy the DOCTYPE
declaration of the input document, but that might be wishful thinking.

Perhaps it might be possible to use DoctypeChanger.jar
(http://doctypechanger.sourceforge.net/) as a basis for writing an extension
function or custom serialization method to retain the DOCTYPE and internal DTD
subset of an input document.

The solution Wendell suggests is probably the easiest, and can be implemented
in the tool of your choice (perl, java, ...). You essentially want to copy the
first few lines of one file into the first few lines of a different file, and
the lines have a specific syntax. (hopefully I've understood the question
correctly.)
