Yes. If you are seeing xml then it isn't set up correctly.
Look at the section Verifying installation
... visit http://localhost/xslisapi/samples/install/installtest.pasp. This
tests dynamic XML generation and should result in text displaying that the
installation is valid.
Do you have a green arrow in the isapi filters property page?

Yes. If you follow the installation directions correctly. That is one point
of the filter that you don't need to do all that.
