That would be confusing but isn't what happens. The XSLT stylesheet is a
parsed tree of element nodes, and it is (some of these) nodes coming
from the literal result elements that get copied to the result tree.
If you have text coming from a text node or a string then it doesn't get
turned into elements unless you call an extension function to use an xml
parser on it.
