On the contrary, I think you are confused. Transforming one XML document
into another is a completely legitimate use of XSL. Doing this with simple
Perl scripts is almost certain to fail on some valid input files: to cope
with all the things you might encounter (CDATA, entities, namespaces) you
need a very complex Perl script.
