Quoted for truth. Note that _qualified_ has different meanings on opposite sides of the Pond. Where a Brit may say He's qualified, but can he do the work? a Yank may express the same thought with He has the credentials, but is he qualified to do the work? Note to Len: Writing and debugging XSLT *is* programming.
