You can't use XSL stylesheets to generate man pages, not without a lot of
klugery anyhow.  XSLT is designed to transform XML documents into other
XML documents, and any attempt to make XSLT generate non-XML output is
extremely troublesome, and in some cases XSLT will not allow you to make
certain output constructions that you need to do because they violate the
rules of XML.
