Beware though that if you're feeding your output to IE it wont like the
xhtml as it can't handle minimized tags.  You are much better off using
the the 'xhtml' output method of xslt 2.0 (currently only available in
Saxon 7.x) - the alternative is to output junk (comments, <dummy/>'s)
from your xslt 1.0 stylesheet to ensure tags don't get minimised.
