Nothing immediate that I can think of. The problem is that the parsing
of the doctype fails, coupled with the fact that SAXOutputter does not
assign an ErrorHandler to the XMLReader that parses the Doctype.

Either patch the XMLOutputter source, or (temporarily) remove the
DocType during transformation.

(I'll submit a patch for SAXOutputter, but that doesn't help you while
using JDOM-B8).
