XT converts XML to XML.  However, it can change how it serializes the
result based on the result-ns attribute.  If the result-ns identifies
the result as HTML 4.0, which XT knows uses SGML syntax, proper syntax
is used.  If you don't use the result-ns attribute, I don't believe XT
will attempt to guess the intended syntax (IOW, XML syntax will be
used for the serialization).
