instruction(name, instruction) - "Called when an instruction is encountered. EG: <?xsl sheet='foo'?> @p name the instruction name; in the example, "xsl" @p instruction the rest of the instruction. In the example, "sheet='foo'""

tag_end(name) - Called when the end tag is reached. In the case of <tag/>, tag_end will be called immidiately after tag_start @p the name of the tag

tag_start(name, attrs) - "Called when a tag is encountered. @p name the tag name @p attrs an array of arrays of attribute/value pairs, suitable for use with assoc or rassoc. IE, <tag attr1="value1" attr2="value2"> will result in tag_start( "tag", # [["attr1","value1"],["attr2","value2"]])"

text(text) - Called when text is encountered in the document @p text the text content.

xmldecl(version, encoding, standalone) - "Called when an XML PI is encountered in the document. EG: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf"?> @p version the version attribute value.
