RE:  Trying to understand XSLT processing
I can't think of any reason for this behaviour, other than the possibility
that your XSLT processor is stripping out elements from the body of
xsl:message. This would be consistent with the way xsl:attribute handles
element content in XSLT 1.0, so it's not impossible - processors can do
pretty well anything they like with xsl:message output. Try using the same
construct outside the context of xsl:message.
