>From the XSLT recommendation:

   "It is an error if instantiating the content of xsl:comment creates
   nodes other than text nodes. An XSLT processor may signal the error; if
   it does not signal the error, it must recover by ignoring the offending
   nodes together with their content."

So, I don't believe you can generate xml within a comment by using
xsl:comment.  You don't show the results of running your stylesheet, but
the fragment you posted should produce an empty comment.

Anyone else have an opinion?

I want to translate some of the incoming XML into HTML, but comment out
certain things that don't make sense in HTML (yet still leave the original

For instance, I want this XML:

<input type="group" name="age" min="1"/>

to be transformed into this:

<!--<input type="group" name="age" min="1"/>-->

How would I go about doing this?  I have this XSL already, but it doesn't
seem to be working properly.  It recognizes the tag in question, but

actually include the contents in the transformation:

<xsl:template match="* | text() | @*">
          <xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>

<xsl:template match="input[@type = 'group']">
