Hi Tinku:

(anyone else on the list please correct me if I'm wrong)

XSLT doesn't do anything at all with DTD's other than to allow you to
specify one on an output file.

In the case of a DTD present in an XML file, XSLT won't see it, and
therefore has no ability to copy it (not to mention, XSLT works with
source _xml_ files, not DTD)

In the case of default value, entities, etc, the DOM (or underlying
document model) expands out the values.  Therefore if you have a default
value of "default" for an attribute "bar" on element "foo", XSLT sees

<foo bar="default"/>

If your source contains:


And if you do a copy of that element, your output will be:

<foo bar="default"/>

Does XSLT processor modifies the DTD present in the original input 

How does the XSLT processor restores the default values present in 
the DTD in the input file?
