I have been testing two xslt translators, the ibm lotusxsl and ixslt.
both of these frequently converty empty tags  into full tags.  The code

<xsl:template match="mytag">
    <outputtag value="whatever"/>
</xsl:template>

produces the ouput

<outputtag value="whatever"></outputtag>

Is this part of the spec?  If so, it is a big problem.  There must be a
way to force output tags to be empty.
