  You are missing the fact that the output type is in the stylesheet
and that you need to process the result document with the stylesheet *again*
using style.saveResultToxxx to generate the serialized output.
It is explained in the documentation.
  Again and to be 100% clear you should not use the serialize()
method to serialize the result of a transformation. And reading
may prove interesting to you:

"An XSLT processor may output the result tree as a sequence of bytes,
 although it is not required to be able to do so"

An XSLT processing generate a tree, then this tree may be serialized
as text, XML, HTML or somthing else.
