First off, thank you both for your replies--they really helped. Unfortunately, 
I have new problem:

It seems that Firefox (as well as xsltproc) want to output an xmlns="" in the 
link tag, which seems reasonable enough to me. However, when that attribute 
is present Firefox refuses to treat links as such--it does nothing when I 
click on it, the cursor is the same for :hover, etc. Is there any way to 
suppress the xmlns attribute?

You are, of course, correct. Here's what I have now, which is /almost/ 

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" 
  <xsl:template match="node()|@*">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/>

  <xsl:template match="xhtml:blockquote">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
      <a class="serendipity_blockquoteReferenceLink" href="{@cite}">
        <xsl:value-of select="@title"/>

(To anyone reading this in the archive, note the two namespaces in the 
xsl:stylesheet element, one of which corresponds to the second xsl:template's 
match attribute.)

I was, unfortunately, a bit too ignorant to even know the proper question to 
look for in the FAQ :(. Sorry.

It did--thank you both again.
