I am new to XSLT. However I  have gotten some transforms running. In

what is a good way to debug XSLT other than printing output.

I have also resorted to testing out XPath expressions in Java to check
what they contain and then trying them in XSLT. Just wondering if
there is a better way.

I use Oxygen XML to debug my XSLT. While like other debuggers you can set breakpoints on program code, with Oxygen you can also set breakpoints on data and get control whenever a node in the tree is visited. I highly recommend the tool.

I hope this helps.
