RE: AS-IS Output in XSL
>From XSL file's point of view (which I am assuming is being parsed by DOM or >SAX parser), anything between angle brackets is "considered" a tag and needs >a closing tag, or a slash at the end. Wrong. Tags delimit a document's elements and document type declarations describe (or point to a description of) the upcoming document. XSL doesn't even know about document type declarations, because a parser hands it the result of parsing the document, which does not include the document type declaration that precedes the document. See also processing instructions and element type, attribute list, entity, and notation declarations, all of which are between angle brackets but none of which are "considered" tags.
