XSL stylesheets _require_ a well-formed XML input tree. It also 
_prefers_ well-formed XML output - just take a look at the Gump 
stylesheets generating shell scripts to see what happens if you try to 
generate non-XML output.

Anakia will always be more flexible since it has no standard to implement.

I will play around with this idea some more. For source fragments, it 
isn't a bad idea. To inject HTML in the output, I don't know.

Do a lot & do it right.
