  Sorry for not answering earlier, I'm really busy at the moment.
Hum I'm afraid your patch is wrong. For example it breaks the regression tests
in tests/xmlspec, outputting the DOCTYPE declaration twice in the generated
HTML spec. So I won't commit it as is.

  Looking at your initial report the point you raised about the xsl:method
attribute not being evaluated correctly is a bit complex:
   - the XSLT-1.1 is now deprecated but defined xsl:document, it defined
     the semantic of the attributes as being the same as for xsl:output.
   - the XSLT-1.1 states clearly that xsl:output attributes are all
     attribute value templates (where {expr} need to be evaluated).
   - However the actual XSLT spec doesn't say the xsl:output attributes are
     attribute value templates.
 Of course libxslt implements most of xsl:document by reusing the same code
as xsl:output, hence the reason why method="{...}" was not evaluated as such.
