Thanks for the very helpful contribution.  However, I'm curious about how to
only extact the comments.  In this example, it extracts the comments AND the
xml tags, how do I get just comments?

Sure. Read and then it should be
apparent why this simple stylesheet will (well, should) do what you want:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns=""; version="1.0">

<xsl:template match="comment()">

<xsl:template match="text()|@*"/>
