No.  It says "embed the presentation of the ending resource in place of the 
presentation of the starting resource."  Typically the starting resource 
is, say, a single XML element in a document; it's not the whole 
document.  You would snip out its presentation, and stuff in a presentation 
of the ending resource, whatever it is.  If "presentation" for you means 
transformation, then you can think of it as pruning and grafting into the 
result tree.
