Subject: what if use of up-to-date xslt processor not an option?|

Let me start this one off by saying that I am confused between xml parsers and xslt processors. Which one is MSXML?
I am using an application that I believe uses either the same or something similar to the MSXML that ships with IE5. This application contains sample xsl, all of which start with:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl">
When I use this, I can create html tables. However, I can't use something like: <TD> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test=". = 'Transaction_Type'"> Transaction Type </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:value-of /> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </TD>
Now, if I change <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl"> to <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
... I find that my text Transaction_Type does change to Transaction Type but I don't get my table. Instead I receive what I think is called the literal result- basically the text of the elements.
I've been reading an XML Namespaces FAQ, and I thought I might be able to work around my problem by having in my xsl:
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl" xmlns:trans="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
Then I rewrote my choose condition like this: <TD> <trans:choose> <trans:when test=". = 'Transaction_Type'"> Transaction Type </trans:when> <trans:otherwise> <xsl:value-of /> </trans:otherwise> </trans:choose> </TD>
But now my table cells contain both the text Transaction Type (notice without the underscore, which is what I want) AND the text that results from <xsl:value-of />.
I hope I have been clear in trying to explain my problem. Can someone give any suggestions on how I can get my tables AND change my text?
