What is the form or an "arbitrary data set" and where would I get such a thing?

With respect,

what you mean to say is Brad can take his existing HTML pages and
convert them to use XSL.

At least that was my best guess after a quick look at it.

With respect,

That is my intention. I apologize for the documentation.. I have had a very hard time getting proof readers who were familiar with XSLT or whaty the heck I was trying to do in the first place.

The idea is that any well-formed XML (there is little special support
for XHTML) can be compiled into an XSL stylesheet and bound to any
arbitrary data set.  The only example provided is docster.html which
can be viewed in a standard browser, and is also the 'source code'
for docster.html.xsl which formats the documentation.  The operators
are embedded as attributes in the source document.

I will put some effort into a brief, clearer description of the
overall goal here and get it out there shortly.

Thank you again for your comments.
