   I want to generate an xml file, with namespace references, like:

   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <!DOCTYPE serial-issue PUBLIC "-//ES//DTD serials issue DTD version
5.1.0//EN//XML" "si510.dtd">


  But then I get the namespace attribute in the output file:

  <serial-issue xmlns:ce=" http://www.elsevier.com/xml/common/dtd ">

KK: My goal was to match what I thought was the correct document.  I have
asked for a real sample from the customer directly but have not received one,
yet.  I do not know that the form would be a problem.  Our submissions for
approval by the customer consist of a large package of files.  I have been
reluctant to contribute a file that doesn't match and have it cause a
rejection of the whole package.  Clearly, I should make a separate query,
especially as my suspicion grows that the model I've used was generated using
tools other than xslt.

If you do generate a file of the form you want (which is quite hard with
XSLT) then the resulting file will not work with microsoft parsers.

KK: I happened to open the files with IE but the ability to be parsed by IE is
not important.


KK:  Thanks for your help,
