Yes, an attribute set to "false" will be true.

Be careful, though: an attribute value is not a string, it is a nodeset. Testing xsl:if test="@att" will return true if the attribute has any value, including a zero length string, because the nodeset is converted to a boolean without going via a string, and is true if the nodeset is non-empty.
