Well, yes, you would think so. My problem is that IE5 processes my entities,
in the internal subset, when I use an XSL ss but not when I use a CSS ss.
What gives? Do I have to pre-process my document using XT to resolve the
entities? Is that the problem?

The files are the same but the second lacks the XSL PI that the first

The XSL ss is more mature than the CSS one, so don't expect much in terms of
aesthetic appeal from the second doc.
