Generating XHTML instead of HTML

Thu Feb 09, 2006 2:29 pm

I have an XML and an XSL file that work well in a regular browser, but the file generated by Oxygen doesn't parse well. I guess it's because it is trying to generate Html Transitional, but I need Xhtml. The Oxygen transformation removes the closing tags for the meta and link declaration, and the img, and so on.
Do you know how I could tell it to do exactly what I need?
Thanks you!

Post samples for receiving more help

Any XSLT transformer embedded in <oXygen/> outputs only well-formed XML documents for the html, xhtml and xml output methods. That means any opening tag is matched by a corresponding closing tag. Please post small sample files of the input XML, input XSL and the transformation result obtained in <oXygen/>. Also post the result that you expect from the transformation in order to receive more help.

If the output method for the transformation is html then an HTML meta tag will appear and it will not have a closing tag indeed.

Now you can set the serialization method to xml in XSLT 1.0 or to xhtml in XSLT 2.0 to have the document XML wellformed.
That will be:
<xsl:output method="xml"/>
or, for XSLT 2.0:
<xsl:output method="xhtml"/>

Perfect! Exactly what I needed. I had forgotten that the <xsl:output> declaration existed :D

Multumesc ;)
