Are you in ALL the same mailing lists as me? =) Orion, XSLT, ?? ...

Anyway.. back to your question...

For me the linear approach works for the large part of the html file..
but templates DEFINITELY come in handy... I use them for code to
handle form elements... navigation bars... copyright info... repeated
elements on the page..

What I do as well is put all of the reusable elements in separate XSL
files and then xsl:import them within the xsl files that they are

This approach makes updating navigational items very easy as well as
removing a lot of re-typing.

Hope this helps.
