We have several pages that utilize these tags so I'm gonna give your
suggestion a go.  Microsoft hasn't really defined in detail what exactly
the support is for these tags in IE 5.0.  It does appear however, that
the w3.org has implimented these tags for a very similar need in xsl.

I wonder why they would not simply name <xsl:functions> as <xsl:script>
unless they are significantly different.  This question also holds merit
when you consider that MS has people on the WD group.

I will try some experiments and see if anything interesting comes out. 
I will be away for a few days (my wife called it a "weekend" or
something) but this will be done by Monday.
