Thank you.  Now it makes perfect sense.  It was my desired result that was
flawed.  If the DTD assigns a default value to an attribute, and an instance
has an occurrence of that element without the attribute, it is assumed the
attribute is there with the default value.

I should not forget basic XML.  Thanks for the clue.

Beyond the XSLT issue, there is a semantic flaw if you need to
differentiate null from default values as defined in the DTD ;) ...

If it's not the case, you can just test that the 3 values of the
attribute are not all equal to their default values.

Otherwise, if you do need to force the parser to skip the DTD and if you
are using a SAX parser, you can implement a specific entity resolver
that will skip this DTD...
