You seem to be suggesting to set the background color based on the
program name.  This won't work.

We want a result like this:

    Installed Software

  Program         Version
  Emacs ......... 19.34 ..
  Emacs ......... 20.3 ...
  Emacs ......... 20.4 ...
  JDK %%%%%%%%%%% 1.1.2 %%
  JDK %%%%%%%%%%% 1.2 %%%%
  XEmacs ........ 20.4 ...
  XEmacs ........ 21.1.9 .

I have tried to visualize the background color with the characters "."
and "%".  This allows you to see, at a glance, which lines belong to
the same program.

Of course, we don't want to change the XSL stylesheet when a new
program is installed.  And we don't want the stylesheet to be
restricted to two versions per program.

I hope I have made things clearer, now.

Btw, the input XML does not necessarily contain the lines in the right
order, as the XML is automatically generated.
