xslt transformation with php

P: n/a
Hi,
I use the xslt functions provided by php. I am running in my computer
the package xampp(www.apachefriends.org) which includes php/apache/mysql
.. In this package the php includes the sablotron extension responsible
for the xslt functions. The problem i have is that the obtained
transformation is not the waited one. I try to proccess the same XML
file with XSL file with a program called XMLspy and i obtained the
desire and waited results.

The transformation is made in the next way:

/* Create an XSLT processor */
$xsltHandle = xslt_create();
/* Perform the transformation */
$html = xslt_process($xsltHandle, 'tmp_new.xml','treeview.xsl');
/* Detect errors */
if (!$html) die('XSLT processing error: '.xslt_error($xsltHandle));
/* Destroy the XSLT processor */
xslt_free($xsltHandle);

This is the XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE tree SYSTEM "node.dtd">
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="treeview.xsl"?>
<tree>
<node>
<type>text</type>
<description>
<title>Problems</title>
<url>./text/p2655.html</url>
<author>Sergio</author>
<date>
<day>7 </day>
<month>2</month>
<year>2004</year>
</date>
<time>
<hours>14</hours>
<minutes>0:</minutes>
</time>
</description>
</node>
</tree>

This is the XHTML file after proccesing with XMLspy(logic transformation):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"><html>
<head>
<title>XHTML Treeview</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="format.css"/>
<script src="functions.js" type="text/javascript">
if (document.images);
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="node">
<img src="./buttons/text_close.png" alt="icon" height="16" width="16"
class="icon-text"/>
<a class="subject"
href="javascript:id_message('./text/p2655.html');">Problems</a>
<br/>
<span class="composer">Sergio 7 /2/2004 14:0:</span>
</div>
</body>
</html>

This is the XHTML file obtained after a php transformation:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>XHTML Treeview</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="format.css"/>
<script src="functions.js" type="text/javascript">
if (document.images);
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="node">
<img src="./buttons/text_close.png" alt="icon" height="16" width="16"
class="icon-text"/>
<a class="subject"
href="javascript:id_message('./text/p2655.html');">Problems</a>
<br/>
<span class="composer">Sergio 7 /2/2004 14:0:</span>




</div>
</body>
</html>

Does somebody knows why it is like that? How can i solve the problem?
Is there a way to control the indention, and whitespace with php in
order to provide a regular structure(later i work with this file and i
need a legible and regular code) once you have a caos file like i have
after the transformation.
Here i include the xsl file. I use the indent="yes in the output
declaration but it does not work with php.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
doctype-system="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"
method="xml" encoding="UTF-8" omit-xml-declaration = "yes" indent =
"yes" />
<xsl:template match="/">
<html>
<head>
<title>XHTML Treeview</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="format.css"/>
<script src="functions.js" type="text/javascript">
if (document.images);
</script>
</head>
<body>
<xsl:apply-templates/>

<!--Match the nodes with a tree parent-->

<!--In the type template the different result depends of the type. If it
