Default error on saxon 8.8

I want to convert an xml file to html with in the xslt file these lines in it:

57 <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="nl" lang="nl">
58 <head>

my output settings are:
<xsl:output xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
               doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

With the new version of saxon 8-8 I get an error on line 48 saying:
Error at element constructor <head> on line 58 of file:/Z:/mydir/basicreport.xsl:
  SESU0013: Unsupported HTML version: 1.0
Transformation failed: Run-time errors were reported

with version 8-7-3 I get no error

does anyone know what this error means?

The error means that Saxon can't produce output conforming to HTML version 1.0. (Quiz question: was there an HTML version 1.0? I've no idea.)

I think you want XHTML version 1.0, so use method="xhtml".

The change in Saxon was to implement a change in the W3C spec: in the past, an unsupported version was simply ignored.
