I have a script embedded in the body of the document before any xsl tags

it does not show the script at all after the body tag. It renders a
document.write command from within the script but nothing else.  I am
assuming this is some weird XSL problem with NS.  Any help with this is
greatly appreciated.

This isn't an XSL problem at all; Netscape 4.x is entirely ignorant of XSL (predating it by a couple of years).

I assume that when you view source in NS, the title of the window says something like "Source of wysiwyg:0//"; When you use document.write, Netscape refuses to show you the real source, only the source as it rendered it (after modification by JavaScript).

There's no "CDATA element", but if you mean a CDATA marked section, that may not be a good idea, since most older browsers have no idea what it is. I'd give that a miss for HTML generation.
