Re:  Newbie wants comments too . . .

Comments are ordinarily not copied because they are matched by a built-in template that discards them:

<xsl:template match="comment()"/>

To override this, simply write a template of your own that copies them:

<xsl:template match="comment()">
  <xsl:copy-of select="."/>

You could also tighten your code as follows:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>
<!-- indent 'yes' asks your serializer to indent so you don't have to -->

<xsl:preserve-space elements="*"/>

<xsl:template match="AsiaInfoDb">

<xsl:template match="AsiaInfoDb/*">
  <aitag id="{name()}">
    <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
    <xsl:value-of select="."/>


This isn't much different (and it should create the same output), but you'll find this approach scales better to more complex sorts of problems.
