OK, Jeni's come up with the goods to get you from your "unchangeable"
xml to the html you want, and I'm sure that's what you need in your
immediate situation. Worth remembering though, that thanks to XSLT,
there's really no such thing as XML input data that "cannot change".
If there's an algorithm to go from one structure to another, XSLT will
apply it for you. Sometimes (e.g if you have a huge mass of legacy
in xml that isn't going to be added to later) it makes sense to write
xsl sheet to transform it up front into xml that needs less acrobatics
convert  into (say) html at a later stage. That way, your production
to go your altered xml to your final html can be easier to understand
