Dear Joerg Heinicke,

Thank you very much for your reply.

In case if I leave the teihtml.xsl style sheet intact, the output that I 
receive is the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<em xmlns:tei=""/>

The pipeline is unchanged and there are no other changes then modifying 
path to the style sheet to use cocoon protocol

That is definitely an option. I had a similar problem when I was trying 
to produce HTML tags and apply an XSL style sheet that matches on some 
of those HTML tags and inserts new ones (one of the use cases might be 
capturing a web page, getting, say, main table via html/body/table path 
and adding it into a new page which would display a custom header). 
Normally it would not provide me with the output that is required (fully 
formatted HTML page), but rather with partial stripped down XML (some of 
the textual content of the page) that was produced by the generator 
without any XML, XSL or HTML tags.

I observed this kind of behavior when trying to go through the "fiery" 
example form Carsten Ziegeler's book "Cocoon:building XML Applications" 
that is located on page 95, chapter 4 Putting Cocoon to Work. In that 
case page was generated successfully, but the transformation give never 
worked. Later on I fixed this example by using <xsl:copy-of select...> 
instead of <xsl:value-of select...>. But in that case it was an 
extremely simple XSL.

Believe it or not, but the very same example worked just fine with 
cocoon 2.0.5 (originally I used Cocoon 2.1.4). Is there any was to 
figure out what those built in templates do and to disable them?

The XSLT processor I use is Xalan (sorry I can't figure out what the 
version is) that comes with Cocoon 2.1.5. When I tried switching to 
Saxon - that's the output is the same.

Thank you very much.
