Hi Ismaël,
Thanks for the response.
Since I am doing xhtml output I use the following:

<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" encoding="UTF-8"
            doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" />

Perhaps this is the problem. However, for XHTML don't I have to say the
method is 'xml'?

Hello Stuart,

you must indicate in the stylesheet you are going to generate html.
Therefore you must add the following line after the stylesheet tag:

	<xsl:output method="html"/>

Kind regards,

I am including the following line in an XSLT template:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="viewSource.js">

I use the latest Xalan for Java and the problem is that since the text node
of the element is empty, the XSLT engine generates the following:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="viewSource.js" />

Well that is fine but for some bizarre reason neither the latest version of
IE nor Mozilla recognize this HTML and, worse, it causes the whole page to
render blank!

What I would like to do is just output the first version of the HTML above
and suppress the XSLT optimization. Anybody know how to do this?
