there is a chance that the processing simply doesn't hit the breakpoint

well,
XSLT doesn't run sequentially through the code,
so the file would be generated, even if only the top template is active

Are you running through your XSL in a stand alone mode,
or do you have a C# program that runs an XSL transform
and you want to break inside the XSL whilst you are running the C#

The latter is possible I believe if you add something to the C# code.
Check the above reference for help on that

If you post the XML and XSL and put a comment where you want to break, I can check if it is a valid breakpoint
Also node that breaking XSLT is tricky. According to the debugger, so locations can't have a breakpoint
(end tags are obvious, result tree fragments are another obvious example since they are literal strings (sort of))
