I think you are being unreasonable here: 1) Owing to han unification, it is impossible (in general) to distinguish between knaji and hanzi. Therefore validation would not be possible. 2) Since Hebrew is read backwards, it would be necessary to stand on your head in order to parse the XSLT. I suppose this is a valid transformation, but it is alittle hard on the casual user, especially for those of us who are not quite so agile as we were in our youth. -- Colin Adams Preston Lancashire
