This is, in general, a non-trivial task - besides the MIF syntax itself,
you have to escape certain characters in text, keep <String>s from getting
too long, and a variety of other fun problems.  Depending on what you're
trying to do, you may want to take a look at the MIF back-end to Jade (a
DSSSL processor - <URL:>) or at the tagged-MIF
generation routines I produced at O'Reilly
(<URL:>).  If you do decide
to use XSL, the code in the orastyle package may prove helpful.  If you
decide to use DSSSL, you'll probably want to subscribe to this list's
