The second part of the answer (which I guess Ken assumed you already knew)
is that having started your transformation without an XML document as input,
you can then read the text file using the unparsed-text() function.
The other thing worth mentioning is the 'default initial template' in
3.0.... what was the end result there?

3.0 will provide a default initial template, which you get by naming the template xsl:initial-template. However, since the XSLT spec doesn't define APIs, the exact effect depends on the API design. On the Saxon command line I'll probably change it so -it without an option value means -it:xsl:initial-template.
