Good heavens, yes. I never said it was evil, merely tedious in XSL
compared with other syntaxes, when it should have been possible to 
provide for iterative handling of ENTITIES as it would be for IDREFS.

Isn't it curious how so many users who would have thrown up their 
hands in horror five years ago at the thought of writing stylesheets 
by hand in -- shall we say -- FOSI or LaTeX, are laboriously 
typing XSL in Notepad today with every evidence of enjoyment?
