Output after applying an XSLT stylesheet to an XML is always an XML?

Hi, I am just reading the ibm tutorial that it states that:

"After applying an XSLT stylehseet to an XML document, the output is always another XML document."

I don't quite understand why the above statement is correct. I believe the XSL processor takes an XML document as input and transforms it (by applying XSLT stylesheet) to a format such as HTML. Perhaps my understanding is incorrect?
