  The DOCTYPE is not part of the XPath data model of the document seen by
the XSLT processor. So it is not possible to preserve it.
 Using txsl:text is not a correct solution. The proper way is to
use the specific attributes of the xsl:output construct see section
16 of the XSLT spec

  hint: nothing replaces reading the specs !
