[jdom-interest] JDOMResult

Hi all,

I have been using the JDOMResult for some transformations where I need a
JDOM Document at the end, but have run into a problem.  It seems that the
Document produced never has a DocType set, even if my xsl stylesheet creates

e.g. I created a doctype with this xsl

<xsl:output indent="yes" method="xml" encoding="UTF-8"
doctype-public="-//IPTC//NITF DTD 2.0//EN"

I used this code to do the transformation

  JDOMResult _result = new JDOMResult();

  StreamSource _source = new StreamSource(anInputStream);

  _transformer.transform(_source, _result);

  Document _document = _result.getDocument();

_document.getDocType() returns null.  If rather than using JDOMResult, I use
a StreamResult and make the Document via a SAXBuilder, the Document has the
correct DocType.

Has anyone else experienced this?
