Actually,  you can't! XSLT doesn't support the <script> elements - they are
(MS) extensions. The closest equivalent is the <functions> element, but,
(and I quote from section 6.4.2 of WD-xslt-19990421), "An XSLT processor is
not required to be able to make use of implementations provided by
xsl:functions elements.".

You _can_ insert <script> into the _output_ stream, which means that the
resulting tree can contain scripting, but you cannot guarantee that the
XSL(T) processor supports anything other than the XSL(T) language.
