This is clearly better than none at all but I doubt its enough for
technologies like Hotspot to really get to grips with a particular
stylesheet. The advise I got was to run *each* test at least 100 times
before starting timing to get maximum Java speed.

There also appears to be a difference depending on if/how the processor
implements output indenting. I just got some better scores by making
indenting the default as apposed to no indenting. I guess the stylesheets
could just be set to turn this off.


p.s. I had a problem with dgnorm on my Win2k box. The distributed one just
kept crashing but if built manually it was ok.
