Im using Saxon via Oxygen.

Im using xsl:result-document with @format to generate result documents.
If I use a variable reference in @format the referenced xml:output is
not used. If I replace the variable reference with a string literal I
get the expected output (in both cases the attribute is an attribute
value template).

My initial code is:


Where $mapFormat has the string value map and the map output declaration is present:


<xsl:output name="map" method="xml" doctype-public="-//OASIS//DTD DITA Map//EN" doctype-system="map.dtd" indent="yes" />

When I run this, the output is not used (result document has no DOCTYPE decl and is not indented).

If I replace format="{$mapFormat} with format={map} then I get the
expected result (DOCTYPE decl, indented markup).

So the only difference is the use of the variable reference. Ive
verified that $mapFormat has a value:

<xsl:message>+ [DEBUG]

Which produces:

+ [DEBUG] mapFormat=map"

It seems unlikely that this is a Saxon bug but Im at a loss as to what
I could be doing wrong to cause this behavior.

What am I missing?

Any chance some part of the stylesheet does e.g. xmlns="http://example.com/ns", i.e. sets a default namespace? If the result-document instruction is inside code doing that but the xsl:output not, then one would use a name in the namespace while the other would use a name in no namespace.
