   >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.

That's right. You need to use xsl:comment to generate the comment but
then you need to create the literal text of the element markup for the
content by something like <xsl:apply-templates mode="verb"/>
there's various of these xml listing modes around (some in the FAQ, I
think), I tend to use the one at
which is a bit old but works well enough for this.
