indesign xml output
In other words, InDesign doesn't use XML Consequently, you'll be forcing 
XSLT to do odd things in order to get the desired output. I think d-o-e is 
about your only hope for that problem.

I also really have to question XSLT's fitness for the task. I'd be turning 
to Perl about now, personally.

Re:  weird formatting and characters with <xsl:text 

Shoot just realized we can't even do that as InDesign uses mandatory
nested tags to define paragraph styles, like <this is a tag<this is a
nested tag>>, so perhaps I will have to look at this all another way??
