Can't get XML to display through XSLT

how to display in xslt

I am trying to transform an XML document with an XSLT, but all that shows up
are the HTML elements, and the for-each loops don't function correctly. When
I try to open the document in Internet Explorer, all I get are a submit
button and a single checkbox. The XML document without the XSLT shows up
fine and is valid to the best of my knowledge. I've tried everything and
searched everywhere I can think of, but can't see what I'm doing wrong.

Here is the XSLT: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
	<xsl:template match="/">
		<xsl:apply-templates />
	<xsl:template match="/main-menu">
		<form name="frmMenuItm" method="POST">
		<xsl:apply-templates />
		<input type="button" value="Edit" />
	<xsl:template match="main-menu/top-level">
		<xsl:for-each select=".">
			<input type="checkbox" value="1"><xsl:attribute
name="name"><xsl:value-of select="title" /></xsl:attribute></input>
			<a href="#"><xsl:value-of select="title" /></a>

And the XML looks something like this:

		<title>Here is a title.</title>
		<other-tag>Something else.</other-tag>
		<title>Another title.</title>
		<other-tag>More nonsense.</other-tag>

Can anyone help?
