Reading the code of xsltSaveResultTo, it appears to me that there is
actually very little logic involved.  Assuming that the variable
"result" is an xmlDocPtr pointing to the result of the
transformation and "style" is an xsltStylesheetPtr pointing to the
stylesheet, and further assuming everything has already been
verified/validated when xsltSaveResultTo was called, then:

const xmlChar *myMethod;

    XSLT_GET_IMPORT_PTR(myMethod, style, method)
    if ((myMethod == NULL) && (result->type == XML_HTML_DOCUMENT_NODE))
        myMethod = (const xmlChar *) "html";

gives you what you are asking for - a string which says
    "html"  - it's HTML
    "text"   - it's TEXT
    "xhtml"- it's XHTML
    anything else, including NULL, is XML

The macro XSLT_GET_IMPORT_PTR is only needed to take care of the
proper cascading of imported stylesheets; if it's guaranteed there
are no imports, then style->method could be directly accessed.
