It's very simple (provided your XSL is simple). If you only want to replace
some element by others use 

make element
make empty-element

Syntax is easy and you won't have to make XSL transformations afterwards. I
use this method to produce XSL-FO documents from SGML documents.


(element FG (make element gi: "fo:inline" attributes: '(("vertical-align"
(element FD (make element gi: "fo:inline" attributes: '(("vertical-align"

<FG>aaa</FG>   is transformed into  <fo:inline

Remember about putting this  first:

(declare-flow-object-class element
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::element")

(declare-flow-object-class empty-element
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::empty-element")

(declare-flow-object-class document-type
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::document-type")

(declare-flow-object-class processing-instruction
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::processing-instruction")

(declare-flow-object-class entity
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::entity")

(declare-flow-object-class entity-ref
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::entity-ref")

(declare-flow-object-class formatting-instruction
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::formatting-instruction")

(declare-characteristic preserve-sdata?
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Characteristic::preserve-sdata?" #t)
