David, I never used XML, let alone XSL or XPath, before last month. I'd no idea where to look for specs or code, other than w3c, but a basic web search turned up MSXML, and as they're members of the w3c I figured they'll eventually be kosha on this (don't mention J++). Anyway, the print can't have been that small: I've got 17% vision ;) Enough of this silliness from me, I'll butt out now.
