nesting xsl templates

This is the last whack at a dead horse, but I want you to understand what I
mean :)

The code below is not structured: it is by definition "flat". There are
calls to other templates from within those templates, and yes, that works -
but there is no proper nesting of the code, where in 80% of cases, I need to
have nested code.

I will, re include :)

I'm doing a fairly complex form builder application now, so I'm sure I'll
have a few other questions. I think xslt could benefit from a little
syntax-overhaul, but in general it's a fantastic idea, and a cool
technology.

When I get something I'm happy with, I'll post it up on binarycloud.com
