Issue # 1: Empty Textarea element with explicit closing tag breaks the trasformation
when the Xslt processor encounters the following:
<textarea>
</textarea>
It converts it to <textarea/> which is not valid, hence the transformation breaks. Only workaround is to add at least a single character as follows:
<textarea>
.
</textarea>

Issue # 2: Regular Expression Patterns do not require you to escape periods (.)
Periods have a special meaning in REGEXP however the EXSLT regexp: function gladly accepts '.' instead of forcing the user to enter '\.' This may be more of an EXSLT issue?
