Firstly, the xhtml namespace is - where
did you get from? Using the wrong
namespace will prevent the page from being displayed correctly if you
ever serve it as an xml mime type.

Second, you want the following output element for XHTML 1.0 Strict,
not the one you are using:
<xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"
		doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
This will use the the html compatible serialisation as given at - and note, no
encoding="utf-8" (that's the default anyway) or method="html" (this,
combined with the wrong namespace, was your problem).

Third, you need to make sure you're not using the c14n functions to
save an result documents.

I've attached a working replacement for your example.xsl - notice the
other additions to the output.

In summary, there's no libxslt bug here.
