	This does part of what I want.
	It's necessary to add lines of the following type for every element  
type I want to cut out:
	<xsl:template match="programlisting" />
	Of course, now I have another problem: Stripping out the xml  
declaration in the output file.
As for what I want, it should be obvious from the second part of my  
question: To check the English language grammar
embedded in DocBook markup. I can't do this directly from my xml  
editor, because my grammar checking software mangles xml markup
(Strips off data type declaration and drops end tags!!)
