likely because I omitted the 'seeing as how I have all of 2 months of
xslt and the first 3 chapters of Mike Kays book behind me' :) I'm a
newby here, and unfortunately that means I'm going to make stupid
mistakes and assumptions. One of the reasons I joined up with the list
is to learn about xslt 'from the field'. If there's a more
newby-oriented list that's more appropriate I'd appreciate a pointer.

But as long as I'm using <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"> as
proposed earlier I'm OK, right?
