( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In trying to test some XSLT code I've been working on, I'm trying to produce valid XHTML and use Test::XML to verify the results. Unfortunately, XML::LibXSLT appears to be generating an unclosed meta tag for the HTML content type. Even if I include my own meta tag, it's removing mine and substituting the invalid one.

As a workaround, I've stripped the meta tag from the resulting HTML and used is_xml() in my test, but I'd much rather have my code produce a valid meta tag. A minimal test case is below with my output in the __DATA__ section. Does anyone get valid XHTML results? If so, I'm running this on OS X. xslt-config returns 1.1.11.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use XML::LibXML; use XML::LibXSLT; my $parser = XML::LibXML->new; my $doc = $parser->parse_string(_xml()); my $style_doc = $parser->parse_string(_stylesheet()); my $xslt = XML::LibXSLT->new; my $sheet = $xslt->parse_stylesheet($style_doc); my $html = $sheet->transform($doc); print $sheet->output_string($html); sub _xml { return <<' END_XML'; <?xml version="1.0"?> <resources> <description>Available instances</description> <resource id="foo"/> <resource id="bar"/> <resource id="bar"/> </resources> END_XML } sub _stylesheet { return <<' END_STYLE_SHEET'; <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="" xmlns:fo=""> <xsl:template match="/"> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UT +F-8"/> <title><xsl:value-of select="/resources/description" /></title +> </head> <body> <table> <xsl:for-each select="resources"> <xsl:apply-templates select="./resource" /> </xsl:for-each> </table> </body> </html> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="resource"> <tr> <td> <xsl:value-of select="@id" /> </td> </tr> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> END_STYLE_SHEET } __DATA__ <html xmlns:fo=""> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> <title>Available instances</title> </head> <body><table> <tr><td>foo</td></tr> <tr><td>bar</td></tr> <tr><td>bar</td></tr> </table></body> </html>

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
