Wrong.

The PHP code only has to call transformToXML() after having loaded the
malicious XSLT code via importStylesheet(). The XML data itself is
irrelevant for this bug and the "sax:output" tag isn't in the PHP script
but in the XSLT stylesheet provided by the attacker.

# LOAD XML FILE 
$XML = new DOMDocument(); 
$XML->loadXML( $sXml ); 

# LOAD XSLT FILE 
$XSL = new DOMDocument(); 
$XSL->loadXML( $sXsl ); // Content of $xXsl may be untrusted !

# START XSLT 
$xslt = new XSLTProcessor(); 
$xslt->importStylesheet( $XSL );

# TRASNFORM & PRINT 
print $xslt->transformToXML( $XML ); // File creation !
