Jumping in here...

How do you setup the exensions in your styelsheet so that you can use
javascript functions?  I'm familiar with, for example, setting up the
namespace for MSXML's  extended time and date formatting and assuming
this is similar to that.

Also, is it possible (in the Windows server world) to write custom
API's as custom function extensions for your XSLT parsing?
