Hi Bill,

 

Are you including the proper doctype with your html output? 

 

For instance, something like this:

 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

 

<html xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-functions" xmlns:xdt="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-datatypes" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xmlns:ead="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9">

 

   <head>

      <title>Guide to a Collection</title>

      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="eadStyle.css"/>

   </head>

<body>

<h1>EAD</h1>

</body>

</html>

 

should validate fine.

 

And for this, you would still use something like <xsl:output method=”html”>

 

Does that work for you?

Subject: EAD 2 XHTML

 

I am attempting to transform EAD to XHTML.  My XSL stylesheet <xsl:stylesheet> element has several namespaces which get output as attribute to the opening <html> element. 

 

Here is my opening stylesheet element:

 

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:ead="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9"
            xmlns:xs
="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-functions"
            xmlns:xdt
="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-datatypes" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">

 

 

Here is the resulting HTML element:  

 

<html xmlns:fn="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-functions" xmlns:xdt="http://www.w3.org/2005/02/xpath-datatypes" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xmlns:ead="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9">

 

 

Here is my <xsl:output> element:

 

 

Of course, these namespace attributes are not valid for the <html> element, but are required for <xsl:stylesheet>.

 

How do I resolve this problem?
