Here is my "Good Riddance, World":

<xsl:template match="/*">
      <xsl:when test="text() != text()">You win!</xsl:when>
      <xsl:otherwise>You lose!</xsl:otherwise>

This is homework for Day One of Intro to XSLT. The problem is to write
the source document that produces the desired outcome.

Cheers, Wendell
