Sorry to say this, but your stylesheet using the namespace


is not in XSLT, notwithstanding its apparent claim that it is. This is an old (in Internet time, ancient -- 1998!), semi-proprietary language once distributed by Microsoft but now no longer supported.

I'm afraid you're on your own, unless you want to take on the task of translating this into XSLT -- this "XSL" stands in about the same relation to W3C XSLT as Etruscan has to Modern Italian. I'm not sure you'll find many Etruscan speakers around, however. (We can help with the Italian -- oops, the XSLT.)

Ciao (e buona fortuna),
