When written out using the XML output method (see [16 Output]), it is possible that a result tree will not be a well-formed XML document; however, it will always be a well-formed external general parsed entity. When the source tree is created by parsing a well-formed XML document, the root node of the source tree will automatically satisfy the normal restrictions of having no text node children and exactly one element child. When the source tree is created in some other way, for example by using the DOM, the usual restrictions are relaxed for the source tree as for the result tree. another way that was possible in most xslt1 systems was to use <xsl:variable name="x"> <foo/> <foo/> <foo/> </xsl:variable> select="xx:node-set($x)" although of course the spec couldn't say that as it couldn't refer to extensions.
