Comment

Note that if we don't use xsl:output to control serialization, it defaults to XML, the use of the XML declaration, the use of UNICODE, and no indention (one long line).

The element xsl :transform can be used as an alias for xsl:stylesheet. Stupid to have two element names for the same element. The name xsl:transform is hardly ever used and should have been deleted from the spec.
