 Issues with XML Generation in 11.2. Generated XML has extra double quote after upgrade to 11.2. It works fine in 11.1.0.7. See the below example-

SQL> DECLARE
  2    v_doc          xdb.dbms_xmldom.DOMDocument;
  3    v_node          xdb.dbms_xmldom.DOMNode;
  4    v_elem          xdb.dbms_xmldom.DOMElement;
  5    test varchar2(300);
  6
  7  BEGIN
  8       v_doc := xdb.dbms_xmldom.NewDomDocument;
  9       xdb.dbms_xmldom.setVersion(v_doc, '1.0');
 10       xdb.dbms_xmldom.setCharSet(v_doc, 'UTF-8');
 11       xdb.dbms_xmldom.SetStandalone(v_doc,'no');
 12       xdb.dbms_xmldom.SetDoctype(v_doc,'Contract','','Contract.dtd');
 13       dbms_xmldom.writeToBuffer(v_doc, test) ;
 14       DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(test);
 15  END;
 16  /

11.1.0.7
--------

<?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?>
<!DOCTYPE Contract SYSTEM "Contract.dtd">


11.2.0.3
