You are requesting html output (not XML) so the result typically is not
well formed XML (as HTML doesn't use XML syntax) but you are also
specifying to use the XHTML DTD (which is an XML DTD, so won't work with
html validating systems.).

XSLT will do what you ask, but the end result is inconsistent.

If you need to generate HTML then specify an HTML DTD (or no DTD) but
the result will then necessarily not be well formed XML (eg <br> not
<br/>)  or if you need to generate XHTML specify method="xml" rather than

Exactly. A closing slash would not be valid in that position in HTML,
but it is mandatory in XHTML.
