I'm with Gregor. I think that the text should be something along
the lines of:

The normative specification for XSL Transformations is [XSLT].
The XSL transformation is encoded within a namespace-qualified
<code>stylesheet</code> element which MUST be the sole transform
parameter child element.


<Transform xmlns="&dsig;" Algorithm="&xslt;">
  <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="&xslt;" ...>

Next paragraph, typo "covert" -> "convert".

Next paragraph, typo "to perform canonicalize" -> "to c10e".
