XT and HTML conversion

I'm a little confused about XT. I was under the impression that XT converted
XML docs to an XMLized HTML, with an XML declaration and empty-element
syntax. I thought it was pretty neat that legacy browsers would still read
the HTML. As I've since found by actually looking at XT's output, XT
produces typical HTML. I take it that I'm using XT correctly and that it is
supposed to output non-XML HTML.

I'm not trying to deprecate XT, as I think it is a great tool, particularly
at its price. I am curious about why it converts to an SGML DTD, instead of
XML. Will this use of XT change at some point? Have I missed a critical
piece of information? Is it possible to use XT without having it insert the
HTML doctype?

I used the following XSL, but I found SGML empty-element syntax in the
output. Is it possible to force XML empty-element syntax?
