[xsl] new user question Saxon

I'm using Saxon 8.4 from Saxonica to process some xml files containing Physical Review data for transformation into tab-delimited files I can then upload into a database. To handle some of the data in the xml, I'm using <xsl:result-document> to write out a new file for a given node.

Problem is that sometimes the processor just kicks back processed data to the screen instead of writing it out to the file(s). No errors or warnings are issued, it simply spits back the data from the XML file (tags removed). I've read that this is because the XML file in question is not valid, nor do I think it's a problem with <xsl:result-document>, but I'm not sure. I think it has something to do with xmlns namespaces, but I'm at a loss ... Thanks for any help in advance
