Hmm, i just built a small test case and can _not_ verify this.
What's the version of your libxslt? Can you provide us with a
little test case? Are your shure you didn't forget the
'omit-xml-declaration="yes"' attribute in the xsl:output tag?

What do you mean by 'content-type' ? That's a concept of HTTP
and not of XML. The content type is part of the semantic of a
document (an text/html page _can_ be valid XML) and the library
has no idea about that. Or do you want to know the output type
