Apologies for the double post.

XSLT is not actually a 'Stylesheet Language', but rather a transformation
system. With XSLT you can output any text you want, which is often HTML, thus
applying some 'style' to the XML. XSL-FO (formatting objects) were created
because XSL didn't have a formatting system of it's own.
For example, the following will removes a "bar" element from a document rooted
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
<!-- remove "bar" from "foo" -->
<xsl:template match="node() | @*" name="identity">
<xsl:apply-templates select="node() | @*"/>
As I said, there are room for some optimizations.
