Patch file

The "XslCompiledTransform" class throws an "XsltException" when executing the "msxsl:node-set" function on an input that is already a node set. This behavior is inconsistent with the Microsoft's .NET class library, which simply passes through the node set instead of throwing an exception. The "msxsl:node-set" function also throws the same exception with an empty string input.

I have attached a possible fix.
