It appears to use jdom stylesheet transformations the result of the transform must also be a Document. What if I want to generate plain text? Or non xml conforming html?

You're right about how it appears. As the API documentation says:
A convenience class to handle simple transformations. The JAXP TrAX classes have more bells and whistles and can be used with JDOMSource and JDOMResult for advanced uses. This class handles the common case and presents a simple interface.

(In case you didn't know, "JAXP" refers to the classes which are now standard in Java, in this case javax.xml.transform.Transformer.)
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
