So you have to result to a hack:
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;!DOCTYPE tldoc SYSTEM "</xsl;text>
<xsl:value-of select="$DTD_PATH" />
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">/tldoc.dtd"&gt;</xsl:text>

I need to validate the xml, hence, am adding the <!DOCTYPE ... > to all my xml files and ruuning xalan as such:
xalan -in file.xml -validate
Can I make the dtd path variable so I would not have to edit all the files if it changes?
