I'm grateful that you indicate problem spots in our documentation and offer suggestions. But may I encourage you to just do (TM) the changes yourself and submit patches in the future? Your suggestions would make it on the website a lot faster that way. We are eager to help you set up your environment to do this.

A really frustrating experience. Just for the record. :-) On 27.05.2003 19:42:19 Clay Leeds wrote: > XSL FAQ: > The XSL FAQ link is incorrect.
