Don't even need a CGI actually. My UNIX is utterly rusty, but it should only be something like >crontab -e i 0 0 * * * date --iso-8601 > /var/www/dateTime :w :q which certainly has fewer keystrokes, and does not need to be redone for every stylesheet. But I agree with Michael that if you are using XSLT and are familiar with XSLT and you don't care that the documents are not portable, then using PIs+XSLT to generate text is completely workable.
