Thanks for your reply, Lars.

Actually, my entire output xml is empty, meaning most element tags exist without any values in the output xml.

Here is the source xml and the xsl in more detail:


<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
<xsl:transform xmlns:xsl = ""; version = "1.0">
<xsl:template match = "ABC">
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;!DOCTYPE OrderProcessing&gt;</xsl:text>
<xsl:element name = "Order">
<xsl:element name ="Info">
<xsl:apply-templates mode = "Attribs" select = "/ABC/info"/>
<xsl:template mode = "Attribs" match = "info">
<xsl:element name = "PO_NUMBER">
<xsl:value-of select="attr/atomicValue[../name='ponumber']"/>

About your query about xsl-output doctype-public, our source xml has an inline DTD. I understand that doctype-public or system are to be used if we have an external DTD. Is that correct?

It's hard to tell, without seeing the part of your stylesheet that deals
with <attr>.
Where is it that you're expecting output but not getting it?

It looks like the <ABC> element should match the first (partial) template
you showed from your stylesheet, unless your XML source uses namespaces
that you haven't mentioned; and therefore should output a <!DOCTYPE ...>
declaration.  (By the way, have you considered using
<xsl:output doctype-public="..." doctype-system="..." /> ?)
