    Hello Randolph,

    XEP is an XSL FO processing tool, it can take XML and XSLT stylesheet
    as an input but only if respective transformation would generate valid
    XSL FO. The output of XEP is always a printable format, either PDF or
    If you need to perform arbitrary XSLT transformation you should use
    dedicated XSLT transformation engine, i.e. Saxon or Xalan.

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov
