XPath expressions _never_ use {}. They may appear as part of a string but
never as syntax punctuation.

XSLT attribute value templates use {} to surround an entire Xpath
expression (not part of an expression) but test= is not an AVT

You just want


However you won't have seen an error from this line as the stylesheet
will not have been passed to the xslt system as it is not well formed.

XSLT does not change the rules of XML: you can't have an element (or even
a just < ) inside an attribute value. 
<x ="zzz<y/>zzz"/>
is not well formed, and neither is:
 <xsl:when test="<xsl:value-of select="InputType"/>='S'">

test takes an Xpath expression, and the Xpath for teh value of the
InputType element is: InputType

so you want

 <xsl:when test="InputType"='S'">

there are several instances of each of these errors
