Guys! I need to transform an XML document to HTML. However, as there are many different XML documents that I need to transform I do not and cannot maintain a CSS or an XSL for each of them. Therefore, I am sacrificing that cosmetic finishing which is acceptable. The HTML i get is also acceptable. However, the javax.xml.transform.Transformer class provided by Xalan, which I am using for transformation produces lot of attributes and places them before the html tag in the generated HTML. This is how I create my transformer, tFactory.newTransformer().
This effect is removed when I use an XSL when creating a transformer class through tFactory.newTransformer(xslDocument) and only the correct HTML is produced. If I dont pass an xsl, it gives me unneeded stuff(comments) some of which I paste here. Please inform how can I remove this unnecessary data?
