Sorry to bring it up again, but I still think we should distinguish semantics from behaviour. Stylesheets *do not* provide semantics, they provide behaviour. Sure, how something behaves ought to be linked to what it means but it ain't the stylesheet that's providing the meaning. Meaning/semantics is surely given by schemata that associate element types, etc with ontologies.
