Jade just defines a bunch of flow objects corresponding to elements,
entities, document types and so forth. Using them is a lot like report
writing, except that instead of using print(), you are returning the
strings and depending on the back-end to concatenate them into an SGML
document (and of course you aren't working with actual markup, but with
conceptula SGML or XML constructs).

It would be very easy to create an XSL variant that did this too.
Trivial, in fact.
