With PHP, all of the transformation is going on server-side with the resulting output being whatever you like, including perfectly normal XHTML.
Transforming documents like this does result in a fair hit on the server (at least, it did a while back when I was experimenting). Couple that with yet another layer of abstraction and it's not ideal of every situation. But it's up to you to decide when it would be good to use these techniques and when it wouldn't.
