It's this magic step that you need to look at. Excel does not merely "display" an "xml string": it processes some form of input (possibly XML input). In what form is the XML relayed as output from the XSLT transform into Excel? Is it serialized (and written as an XML file), and if so where, and if not, is there any way to serialize it?
If you can't inspect your output directly in some fashion (before another tool does its devilish thing with it) then how can you possibly debug the transform? (BTW -- hint -- there's currently a very useful thread going on about the best books to learn XSLT from. :-)
There must be a way to look at the output before it gets all the way through to the the spreadsheet.
