Granted.  But is it so much to ask, to be able to produce well-formed
HTML as well?  After all, the XSL draft is speckled with references
to doing so, but well-formed and valid HTML just isn't XML -- even though
with one little allowance, it can become so.

Given the continuing importance of HTML or HTML+CSS as an output
format, this doesn't seem like such a large change.
