  For those using xsltproc, I just released libxml2-2.4.28 which should
close this problem. The XML serializer look at the DOCTYPE and if XHTML1
will then make the appropriates changes listed in the XHTML1 spec, example
paphio:~/tmp -> xsltproc docbook-xsl-1.56.1/xhtml/docbook.xsl sample.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd";>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" /><title>Trivial example</title><meta name="generator" content="DocBook XSL Stylesheets V1.56.1" id="generator" /></head><body><div class="article"><div class="titlepage"><div><h1 class="title"><a id="id2892826"></a>Trivial example</h1></div><hr /></div><p>
    Just a trivial docbook article.
paphio:~/tmp ->

  things like the meta charset tag, <a id="id2892826"></a> and <hr />
