XSL filter transforms the stylesheet's (layout's) content, not the item's #399

When invoked, the XSL filter attempts to transform the stylesheet's own content using the stylesheet and not the item's. This is easy to demonstrate using a stylesheet that merely duplicates its input, i.e.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl=""
  <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:copy-of select="/"/>

The result will be the stylesheet itself embedded in the output, not the item's content as you'd expect.

The problem is in, which uses the value of the content parameter passed to it as the content to transform. But when invoked as a layout, and the XSL filter is only ever invoked as a layout, this parameter contains the layout's content and not the item's. The item's content is available as assigns[:content] instead.

I've fixed this problem and updated the test cases locally and will be submitting a pull request shortly.
