Hello collective wisdom -

I would like to have several entity declarations in my output XML. 

Is this doable with XSL 1.1?

Do you reallmy mean XSLT 1.1?

How are you planning to reference the entities in the generated XML?

Here is an example that does it
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";>
  <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"><![CDATA[<!DOCTYPE boy [
  <!ENTITY name "simon">
      <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&amp;name;</xsl:text>

And here is the result of running it:
$ xsltproc doctype.xsl doctype.xsl
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE boy [
<!ENTITY name "simon">

And here is the result of expanding entities:
$ xsltproc doctype.xsl doctype.xsl | xmllint --noent -
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE boy [
<!ENTITY name "simon">
