Okay I have my two transfomations working properly from a command line
but I am having some difficulty packaging it. Basically I am stuck with 
an XML file with a stylesheet reference in it:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="Group.xsl"?>
 <row> <A>0</A> <B>0</B> <C>0</C> <D>0</D> </row>
 <row> <A>1</A> <B>1</B> <C>1</C> <D>1</D> </row>

In the stylesheet Group.xsl I am attempting to do the two transformations
within msxml script:

  <msxsl:script language="javascript" implements-prefix="user">
   function DoIt(xml,xsl1) {
    xsl2 = xml.transformNode(xsl1.documentElement);
    html = xml.transformNode(xsl2.documentElement);
    return html;

<xsl:variable name="result" 

Group1.xsl is the styleshet that will generate the stylesheet with 
key definitions in it. I am a little confused if I can proceed like 
this and exactly what type of object the XSLT function document() 
passes to the JavaScript DoIt function. I have never had to do a
transform within JavaScript called from within a stylesheet before.
Can anyone clear this up? Thanks.
