the spec itself has traditionally served as a "hello world" example ... 
I've place resources for a DTD and RELAXNG schema as well as a 
reference to your XSLT in a new spec that I've modified from Tim 
Bray's. The new location, for the moment, is

I've included a reference to this in the document at the above URI. The 
way the nature and purpose are handled (the nature is "XSLT", the 
purpose is the *output* format) should allow programs to use the RDDL 
to chain transforms in order to obtain a desired format -- if this is 
actually useful. e.g. suppose you have XSLTs for converting formats A 
-> B and B -> C, using the RDDLs for A, B, C a program could derive a 
two stage transform of A -> C.
