Thanks for both of your quick responses.  You've confirmed I am on the
right path.  There is a lot to think about.

I think this would be possible, if complicated.  The user is not limited
on the number of tables they can insert, so there could be several
templates generated. It seems I would still end up with a variation of
3, as I would want to consolidate the number of templates to a minimum,
since the user could specify multiple tables with the same number of
sort statements. This would also mean I would have to output the master
stylesheet on the fly, too, to get the list of includes correct.

This would certainly be the most expedient solution in the short term.
