I'm trying to convert a site which currently is XHTML valid to use xslt

When I run the old handmade jsp pages through

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "";>

it validates. My stylesheet contains this

 <xsl:output method="html"
  doctype-public='-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

Which sticks this at the top of the doc

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "";>

Notice the case of the html entry. This throws up the w3c error

/Line 1 column 120/: DTD did not contain element declaration for
document type name.


Do I really need to make that read "html" and if so how please?

Which processor are you using?

Also, do you really want the "html" output method if your target is
xhtml - shouldn't you be using the "xml" output method in 1.0, and
"xhtml" in 2.0?  Otherwise <br/> will be <br> etc
