First, the quick answer.   If you're using embedded stylesheets, IE
doesn't support it (at least as of 2002 by a quick search of the
archives).  In fact, I'd be suprised if many processors supported it,
but I never use them and don't know of anyone who does.  For more
detailed comments, look below.

Ok, after thinking about it some more, and reading over your reply as well as my code again, I understand what you mean by "embedded". What I am confused about, though, is your statement that it is "not supported by IE". I'm using it fine with IE 6.0.2900.2180 on SP2. It places the XSLT translations directly into the Javascript code no problems. I know its not an elegant way of doing it, but I haven't had a problem yet. I have seen issues with Firefox and Mozilla, but I do know it handles stylesheets in general differently than IE, so once I got the groundwork down, I will account for differences in Netscape/Firefox/Mozilla.

I also understand your concerns about creating "bad habits in coding" right from the beginning by using "hacks" or styles that aren't supported ubiquitously. Right now, I'm not coding for production, I'm coding for fun to get a "feel" for XSLT. I probably shouldn't have asked such a question on such a mailing list without fully going over a tutorial or proper documentation first.

Thanks for all your help,
