That will match <html> and then effectively copy the whole input tree
to the output...  you need to call apply-templates:

	<xsl:template match="/">
		<xsl:apply-templates mode="test"/>

	<xsl:template match="node() | @*" mode="test">
			<xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()" mode="#current"/>

	<xsl:template match="head" mode="test">
			<xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()" mode="test" />
			<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" />
