One of the basic things to learn about XSLT that it does a
transformation for you and that it creates an output tree, but that you
have to tell it yourself what to do with it.
Depending on the processor you are using, which you did not specify, you
can do that in several ways. Mostly:
1. On the commandline, pipe stdout to your preferred output file
2. On the commandline, using the commandline option of your processor,
i.e. -out or -o or whatever
3. From your calling application, i.e., with Java, using any interface
that is applicable,i.e., JAXP
4. From your workflow application, that can capture stdout
5. Using a PI inside the XML source file and calling the XML file in a
way your processor understands (sometimes this goes automatically)
the output, but the output can, of course, not be saved
