    It isn't clear if the sub headings below
    Phase 0, XML parse of stylesheet and input document:
    are intended to imply chronological order of those actions.
    If so the order is wrong but it's probably best not to 
    imply any such order as in practice they are all interleaved.

Noted; I've re-arranged as suggested. Recursion wasn't what
I was aiming at, but it becomes clear how useful it is!

    In phase 1 you end with
        Build the output tree.
    but XSLT 1 and 2 are both written so that the output tree 
    need not be built if it is going to be followed by stage 3. 
    You can serialise as you go.
So merge the second and third phases.
  Its probably of little interest to those asking about entity
expansion or access to the encoding in the xml declaration.
OK, will do, with caveat.

Thanks David.
