 Anyone know if its possible to stop xalan from output DTD defined attribute
defaults in its output?

Not including DTD defaulted attributes in the XPath data model would be non-conformant. According to the specification, the XPath model for a document includes on the attribute axis all attributes either specified or defaulted, and you are not able to distinguish between the two.

Remove any reference to the DTD and on input you will build a tree with only specified attributes and not defaulted attributes. Then, when you output the input tree, you will not see DTD-defined attribute defaults.

I hope this helps.
