Well, yes! ;-)

Your stylesheets are applied one after another, i.e. page_header_to_html.xsl 
is applied to your XML file and produces something like:

     the head

page_footer_to_html.xsl is applied to this and produces:


Depending on you want to do you should either use one stylesheet or the first 
stylesheet has to copy everything it doesn't handle itself, e.g. with:

<xsl:template match="*">
    <xsl:copy-of select="."/>

(This is getting more and more an XSLT question. Hope I'm not getting too 
off-topic ;-)

BTW: It's strange that you don't get an error, althoug the XML after the 
first stylesheet does only contain a text node (no root element). This is not 
well formed XML. Any ideas on this?
