Which is the XSLT way of doing things.

Yes. No. This is one of the most annoying things about Microsoft's XSL
effort - the fact that they don't plaster their site with disclaimers
declaring that the examples they've got don't actually conform to the
spec. This is a constant source of confusion for XSLT coder-wannabe's.

Are you sure you can't switch to server side XSLT?
